Newbie question - flash overexposure

Hihah

First of all I like to say "HI" to all of you. I have been doing lots of reading on the forum and tried some tuts for use in photoshop. I have shot some photo's of some products we have and now there is some glitch you can see in the image of the product i would like to get ride of. Check the attachment. Any idea how i can get ride of that glitch due to the flash of the camera. I have tried the patch tool but i dont think thats the proper way to go. Any ideas?

Regards,

Rik

Re: Newbie question - flash overexposure

If possible to retake the photo you would want to keep the flash either more to the left or to the right of the product at about a 45 degree angle.

Look up "family of angles" for a guide. If a reshoot isn't possible, a very low opacity (10%) and clone tool, very soft brush to reduce the shine a bit.

@bgouler Thanks for the reply.

I have been doing some cloning but i dont like the effect. The texture of the banana is pulled of its proportion. I have seen some tuts where people replace certain sections going to have that a try as well. Once i have some examples to show i will post them. In the meantime i think it might be wise to shoot some new photo's under a different angle. Thanks for the help.

I tried to clone the highlights, using the clone source options.
