Here is the image, i have unwanted glare and the client wants it gone.

Whats the best way of cloning it?




im having a hard time because when i clone it goes in a straight line, i even tried sampling some of the other lines from the plate but that looked like shit too

Try to repaint it.

You can replicate the green lines using brush stroked paths. Getting the correct varying thickness could be achieved using the 'simulate pressure' option and a minimum brush diameter.

To recreate the form, you can make gradients which you massage into the right shapes using distort/warp/puppet warp. Cloning or painting with a 10%/10% brush might work just as well though, just use the quickest method. smile.gif

It will take some work, but it looks definitely fixable.

I would try to repaint it...

Ok, I hope you don't mind....



I didn't do the other lines cause once I got the 1st one done the same would have been really easy to do..

This is basically how i did it.


  • Paint over the whole area what you want repaint. Use the base color the color of the actual plate.
  • You will notice difference in certain areas. Lock the mask and grab the colors that differ from close by areas. Make sure to use a big soft brush.
  • One the base of the plate is set grab your pen tool.
  • Draw a single curve that would follow the original curve.
  • In the path tab make sure to select the "Stroke Path with Brush" make sure it's a soft brush with a decent size that looks like the line
  • Fine tune the path if needed
  • delete/mask what is too much if it doesn't look quite right
  • hope the client likes it

Now looking at it... more carefully..> I would give the part I painted over a gradient to give it more depth.. It looks kinda flat.... but you get the basic idea.

I can get rid of the glare no problem. But it's the green lines I want to continue. On yours they just vanish. Kno what I mean dude

5 minute job (and it shows):



Brush stroked paths are your friend. On a full res image you should be able to get this perfectly right in 15 - 30 minutes.

Edit: I'm just repeating Blue Devil now tongue.gif
