Re: Cloning old bushes

Before cloning like mad, I would first select the bushes and duplicate it so it's on a new layer. Drag it over to the right a little and free transform it a little to make it less uniform. Now you have a bigger source to work with. Clone away and seams or lines you might see and adjust to taste. Good luck.

Re: Cloning old bushes

If the bushes are in the background and not the subject of the shot, you can sometimes borrow from other sources (pictures from the same shoot?). The main thing to avoid is repetition patterns. Also always clone on a new layer so you can adjust color tones separately to match the original photo.

Re: Cloning old bushes

cloning at different heights will add a bit of variability

Re: Cloning old bushes

You can also clone onto different layers so that they can be free transformed, reversed, and otherwise tweaked.
