When cloning, I usually block out with the brush set at 100%, semi-soft. I then set brush opacity to about 15% and use it to blend round the edges, this usually gives good results.

I don't use healing brush much, because I'm still on PS7, so can't use it on a seperate layer (not a problem with later versions).

Always work on a seperate layer, that way it's easier to correct any mistakes you may make.

Good luck with your picture, look forward to seeing your results.

Hi everybody,

really great job Gary!!

I'm only posting my version because I used a slightly different method ('copy + paste into' from Katrin Eismann' s book) followed by a few 'blank layers set to..' , in this case Lighten, Darken, Soft Light and Overlay...

I have described, step-by-step, the 'copy + paste into' technique here and the Tutorial on the 'blank layers set to..' is here

I wasn't as brave as Gary to tackle the braces ... ...and I work with PS CS2 as well...

Thanks Flora. Interesting to see a different approach used (with the usual impeccable results we expect from you), I'm definitely going to have to play around with the blank layer technique more than I've done so far.

The shadow areas are a little dark, so I did the following with your resoration to lighten them up a little.

Copied BG to a new layer. Desaturated layer, then inverted it. Set blend mode to Soft Light, then reduced layer opacity to 35%.

Finally adjusted levels to brighten whites a little.
