Re: Wal Mart Sticker is ruining my image.....

(exactly as Gary said, and....)

Please don't forget that this image is about the young lady (Anna , it seems) and her pretty smile as she hugs a tree trunk. Her hand is of secondary interest.

So... even if your cloning remains less than "stellar" there's no need to call the observer's attention to it. If you focus the observer's attention on the face they won't even notice the (blotchy) hands.

You can increase the contrast, the lighting, the focus, the colours of the face and even crop the image to leave the hands well away from the centre.

...and welcome to RetouchPRO

You could also add a vignette to further draw attention away from her hands.

I've applied one to Ro's picture to illustrate (my apologies to him if this is inappropriate).

Thank you very much. I've actually been here for a little while. Its just taken me a minute to get around to actually posting. I had to register for that, though I've been lurking for about a year.

Re: Wal Mart Sticker is ruining my image.....

It seems like the clone tool is one of the hardest tools to master in Photoshop. There are combinations of brush softness, brush opacity, brush size, blend modes and brush shapes that play into getting a realistic clone onto an area. I've found the clone tool to be extremely hard to do well. Need a lot more practice.

Quick Tip when cloning.

] increases brush size, [ decreases brush size.

Shift + ] increases brush softness, Shift +[ increases brush hardness

Thanks for all the help guys. I've decided to keep the sticker at the advice of some people, and to keep a cloned copy for myself without the stickers.

Really a cute picture.
