    I'm restoring a photo that is in such bad shape that I'm having to resort to using the airbrush rather than the clone tool.

    Is there a way to "paint" texture??

    For example, there is a ladies skirt that is eaten away by mold or something. I'm having to create almost the whole skirt, but the airbush doesn't lay down any texture.

    I could select the skirt and add noise, but noise doesn't look fabric-like.

    What I'd like to do is scan a chunk of cloth and then pick up just the texture and paint it over the areas that need it.

    Does anyone know how to do this, or is this a suggestion for Adobe's next release.

    Well, a way to 'paint' texture doesn't come immediately to mind (although some of the new PS7 brush options are amazing, I hear). But you can fill with a texture.

    Two options come to mind (might be a little unclear, I'm making this up as I type):

    1. select your texture and save it as a pattern. Select the area you want filled, make a new layer, and use pattern fill. Then use blend modes and eraser to make it fit.

    2. Similar to above, only make a new layer, fill the entire layer with texture, then use that layer as your clone tool source. Different blend modes on the clone tool might help here, too.

    Refinements and dismissals invited.

      This thread was inspired by Tom Pinnock's entry in the Photo Art Challenge #1. I especially liked his use of multiple filters to simulate texture. Thanks, Tom. I needed that.

      How to copy and use any texture?
      by abdul10000
      I can't seem to find an answer to this in search. How to copy texture from image content and reuse it the same picture?

      Say for example I want to smooth a portrait background (paper role has many folds). Dodge and burn does not work here, so I have to paint in the same color and brightness...

      How to reproduce this texture?
      by LunaLuna
      Hi everyone,

      I've been asked to retouch some rings that must have a brushed texture like in attachment.

      The only thing that comes to my mind is drawing it, but it will take too much time.

      Any ideas?

      Thanks in advance!...
