    Hi,
    I'm not sure what's this process is called (so I can't ask how to do it yet) but I will try to describe it.

    In the very bad photo below (which I took purposely for this example in 2 seconds so please don't spend time commenting on it), I want to remove the green hose and replace it with the background that would have been there had the green hose not been present. I know how to select and remove the green hose, but I have no idea how to fill in the area with the composite of the rocks and the grass.

    Thanks in advance.

    That would be cloning.

    You would basically select the clone tool in whatever program you have and 'paint' over it.

    You have to select an area to clone from, probably by Ctrl+clicking on it, and start cloning away.

    Search youtube for some tutorials. "Cloning in (Whatever program you have)".
    You should get a lot of hits.

    Cool. I've got PS CS3 so now I just have to learn how to do it.

    Thank you!
