Water stains

I've done a search and can't seem to find the exact same problem. The stains on the photo look like drips as opposed to one blob. I tried cloning and that doesn't look to good. Any other way to go?

The attachment has no corrections done but I'm interested in the drips if you can see them.

Re: Water stains

I am just a beginner but I see nothing wrong with using the cloning tool. I had a go and it seemed okay to me. I did it in small bits and needed to reset the source frequently.

Re: Water stains

Thanks...I was wondering if I had not searched enough and was asking a redundant question.

In using the clone tool, the cloth looked spotty after I finished. I was just wondering if this was one of those thing where there were several way to do it.

Re: Water stains

if you have good unmarked regions of the coat in the picture,it is worth repairing the stains and then going back and using the patch tool to recover the texture using the good regions for the source. Sometimes you can just use the patch tool straight off but I find you get a better result by at least getting the same colour and luminosity before hand and then just patching afterwards.

Re: Water stains

In large areas frequency separation works good.

Re: Water stains

clone shld work fine. airbrush on a separate blank layer shld also work and you might even use a color blend mode with it.
