Hi, I had a look around and i think this is the best place for my thread. I'm after advice on photoshop techniques. I want to turn this: into this: Is the clone tool the best way to do this? and if so, can someone help me do a better job please? I always get repeating patterns if I try too carefully and unmatching shades if i don't try carefully enough. Any suggestions warmly welcomed (as are comment on this image itself). Thanks in advance.
