    This is a photo I took not so long ago of a friend, but there is one thing that is really bothering me about it. On the forehead above the eye, there is a strand of hair and try as I might I am having issues removing it.

    The only method that I am aware of to do this kind of work is the clone stamp and then possibly the healing brush. However, I was having a really tough time with cohesive clone stamping because of her freckles. Any suggestions?

    Any alterations made are welcome to be reposted.

    Thanks!

    im sure theres someone here that can do this better, so hopefully one of the people here that has Photoshop, and is a lot better with it than i am, can help you more.

    Thank you very much, what you did was still infinitely better than what I was coming up with. The freckles were killing me.

    It looks great and thank you again,

    youre welcome. :wink:

    ive been meaning to practice using PaintShop more, and trying edits on other peoples photos is a better way for me to get practice. if i commit to the edit, i commit myself to posting it no matter how horrible i think it looks so i tend to try a lot harder than i do with my own. :lmao:

    Haha that is an excellent policy and will certainly increase your skill quite rapidly. I might try that myself.

    Try the patch tool. I've found it to be a lot better at retaining the normal grain/noise/freckle, etc... pattern/texture than the healing brush. I just started learning about it a few months ago, and now it's my new favorite tool! I'm cleaning up problems in minutes that used to take me hours.
