  • Clone Tool Help

    I want to remove the furniture bottom left in this image but when I use the clone tool the area is really patchy. How can I overcome this?

    I would also really like to remove the light switch but dont know where to start with that?

    Use quick selection to select the are where you want to work with, and than first use the clone stamp tool to get rough approximation of color and tone. After that its just healing brush tool. Use reduce noise filter and median filter, to get even color of the background, and optionally you can add noise to look like it has some texture.

        Another good way is to copy to a new layer the area of the wall located above the furniture by using the marquee tool and then, nudging it till you cover the furniture, then fix the lightness differences by using the healling brush. With the switch is a bit harder because the hair, but it can be done the same way than the furniture.

          The Dredded Clone Tool
          by jjjay00
          Ok, now I've heard the dredded cloning tool (PS CS2) mentioned quite a bit. The reason why I say dredded is because I can't get the hang of it...Apparently you can clone on nice skin - soft, clean, but still with pores showing in other words natural. I'm kind of getting over the flat blurred skin tone...

          The problem with 'smudging' with the clone tool is caused by cloning from an area just set down by the clone tool. This causes a repeating pattern. It can be very obvious, as in a noticable feature or flaw repeating, or more subtle, as in the grain looking 'unnatural' since it doesn't match and is made...
