Another one: the paper describes a method to fix pixels based in other image area, but the related family of apps (PS v7 and newer, PS Elements v3 and newer) provides at least three tools that seem to do what the paper talks about: - healing brush, behaves like clone tool plus extra processing performed when the stroke is finished. Rather interactive and quick, if you mastered clone, this one is easy to use. http://video.about.com/graphicssoft/How-to-fix-blemishes-.htm Notice the clock cursor, that is the extra processing, with old computer and big area you clearly see it does clone and secs later it blends. - patch tool, behaves like a reversed order copy & paste (first select area to fix, then source). Allows knowing both areas perfectly thus avoiding one typical problem of clone: a big stroke covers all you want... but starts to get pixels from source you do not want. The extra processing is done at the end of the motion, too. http://video.about.com/graphicssoft/The-Patch-Tool.htm Notice how it looks like copy and then blends. - spot healing brush, behaves like paint tool. A drop down decides what the program uses as "inspiration" for the fix. Simpler than clone but prone to not doing what you want if used in really big areas or complex images (thus the name "spot", best used for dust in sky of a photo, ie). http://www.totaltraining.com/videos/mov/TPSE3_Healing_Brush.mov Notice some undo and redos until the guessing is correct. Looking at the paper without looking at the tools is a bit strange, you already accepted looking at the inner part, better look at the full picture then. Or at least set the context of what is going to be copied, what not, what is going to be completly new or what is going to be improved.
