Hotflushes, welcome to RetouchPro. It depends what software you have, but if you have Photoshop you would typically use tools such as the Clone (Stamp) tool, of the Healing Brush / Spot Healing Brush / Patch Tool. If you would like more specific advise I suggest you attach an example of your image or some part of it, to this thread by clicking the Advanced button and then the Manage Attachments button.
Regards, Murray

Thankyou for that reply Murray. I have only downloaded Photoshop today and don`t know how to use tools. The photo I have is too big to attach to this thread. Never done stuff like this before.

Re: old photo

Hotflushes, well then I would recommend you first play around with the tools to get a feel for how they function. You will find that the pdf Photoshop user guide (now called Help Guide) will be very helpful to you. As for attaching a file here, yes, there is a limit to 100KB for standard members (200KB for Patron Members). However you can resize your larger image using Photoshops Image>Image Size command under the Image Menu. Another quick and easy way to reduce the image size is to open it on your monitor then hit Alt+PrintScreen keys on your keyboard to take a screenshot which will be 72 dpi. You could then activate PS, hit Ctrl N to open a new document, then Ctrl V to automatically paste the screenshot into PS, then finally save it as a jpg file. When the save dialog box comes up, enter 12 into the quality box and wait a couple of seconds until PS shows you what size the file will be saved at. If it is higher than 100K just keep lowering the quality number until the size falls below 100K.
Regards, Murray

Not sure if this is allowed but I want to pass on to you a book suggestion that I highly recommend.

Katrina Eismann does a great job of walking you through the steps. Very good book.
