....As for Cloning, Painting, Airbrushing etc. , I always do it on a newly created empty Layer(**) on top of the one with the image I want to fix.

In this way, I can always change, correct or erase if not satisfied or if I make an error ...

To Clone, Paint etc. in a straight line just click on the Start point and keeping the 'Shift' key pressed, click on the End point ... You'll have a perfectly straight line from Start to End!

(**) Just make sure you have the "Use All Layers" box checked!!!

Another thing to consider that might help with matching areas to patch is straightening the perspective. This is a common procedure for real estate photos. I used the measure tool along the left vertical building edge and then Image>Rotate Canvas>Arbitrary to rotate it to true vertical (it automatically plugs in the correct number). Then I used the crop tool set to Perspective to align the left and right vertical edges of the building (horizontal wouldn't look right fixed this way). I then dragged the edges of the crop border out beyond the actual image area to make sure I didn't lose any data.
