    With all due respect, if you are too lazy to learn it then I am too lazy to help.

    GIMP is free, it can do that just fine... do your own homework.

    Internet tutorials: They can be great.

    One thing you want to avoid when using the cloning tool is exactly what the guy does at the end of the tutorial - have two identical rocks, or any other object. This may fool some people, but once you spot it, it looks even more out of place than a bottle because it is unnatural, and draws attention from the rest of the photo even more. Especially in the example shown in the tutorial where the rocks are next to each other.

    When you are cloning a detailed part of a photo onto another, you need to modify it in some way in order to make it look different from the original. You can clone more abstract detail from various parts of the image into a larger cloned area for example, and even rotating it when possible is better than nothing.

    That's in case you are not too lazy after all :).

    Another thing, if you are going to ask people to help you edit your photos, you should prolly change your command to "It is OK to edit my photos"
