Hey Ron,

Thanks for the tutorial! I haven't tried it yet, but it's for certain that I will. Thanks to Doug too for letting us know about it.

Thumbs down 1st Prize for the best tutorial!!!

Thanks Ron for the great tutorial. It is new and original and a very good technique. I can't wait to put it to use. Sometimes that clone tool seems like the only alternative but can leave you disappointed. This looks like a wonderful alternative.

It was a good tutorial. I especially appreciated the screenshots, and the animated shots were a bonus!

I've used a version of this technique for some time. It's especially useful for scratches, since they tend to all go in the same direction. You move the duplicate layer perpendicular to the direction of most of the scratches and you can get rid of a lot of them without having to readjust.

I haven't had a chance to try it yet (and probably won't before I leave on a short vacation to Canyonlands tomorrow), but I've bookmarked it so that I'll remember to use it. Can't wait!

Tutorial is well done, and the tip is a real help - just tried it out on an image to replace some tears in chair fabric - worked great and doesn't seem to need "fixing" after the repair. It's great to have another tool in the ol' toolbox!

I tried this method and it only worked part of the time. Most of the time it didn't work. I may be doing something wrong but I went back and forth to the directions and to a photo shop picture. Disapointed.

Fantastic!

Thank you Ron. I just watched a heap of telegraph wires disappear from a photo I have using your method.

Much appreciated.

Paris
