Wish list...

I'm restoring a photo that is in such bad shape that I'm having to resort to using the airbrush rather than the clone tool.

Is there a way to "paint" texture??

For example, there is a ladies skirt that is eaten away by mold or something. I'm having to create almost the whole skirt, but the airbush doesn't lay down any texture.

I could select the skirt and add noise, but noise doesn't look fabric-like.

What I'd like to do is scan a chunk of cloth and then pick up just the texture and paint it over the areas that need it.

Does anyone know how to do this, or is this a suggestion for Adobe's next release.

Well, a way to 'paint' texture doesn't come immediately to mind (although some of the new PS7 brush options are amazing, I hear). But you can fill with a texture.

Two options come to mind (might be a little unclear, I'm making this up as I type):

1. select your texture and save it as a pattern. Select the area you want filled, make a new layer, and use pattern fill. Then use blend modes and eraser to make it fit.

2. Similar to above, only make a new layer, fill the entire layer with texture, then use that layer as your clone tool source. Different blend modes on the clone tool might help here, too.

Refinements and dismissals invited.
