Re: Patch tool not working the right way?

My suggestion is to cut the dark fence completely out and put the dog and grass on a new layer (Select Dog and grass ... Ctrl+J to put them on a new layer) without the fence... then patch away without much dark fence fading into your picture

Re: Patch tool not working the right way?

Hi! I took a stab at it for you. The main work was done with the patch tool. I work in small increments and then work outward to include larger chunks. I use the clone tool only for extreme transitions, like at the line where the fence meets the grass, then slightly here and there to help create a somewhat realistic blend of the grass.

It's not a perfect job but decent LOL Hope it works for you!

I lowered the quality to get it in since it said the file size was too big. Is that 100kb limit constant or does it get bigger the longer you're a member?
