The numbers will be different for a larger image. I have another shortcut method involving the patch tool. You can't escape all cloning, but you can escape most of it with these methods. If you post a link to the original or an important part of the original at 100% size, I can re-assess if you like.

Thanks Bart, but I think I've invested all the time I'm willing to in this one.

Someone wanted to see a full sized before and after, so I created this 100% before and after crop.

I'm linking instead of uploading because it exceeds the 100px limit and I don't want to have to remake it.

100% crop sample

If someone would set this forum up to display images from links like most other BBS software going somewhere else wouldn't be necessary.

this is what is known as 'leeching bandwidth'. a lot of sites dont do it any more and a lot of sites will block others from doing it. when you do this, you are 'stealing' the other site's bandwidth because the link posted is always active and this takes bandwidth from the other site, since they have to send it constantly. whereas, if you simply provide a link to their site, their bandwidth only gets used when someone clicks on the link. it's like having your television running 24 hours a day to see a 5 minute show as opposed to just turning on the tv for that 5 minutes.

and since some sites are operating on limited bandwidth and have to pay extra when they exceed that, i certainly understand this.
