Patch Tool How To

Mar 10, 2012 1:51 PM

CS5, Photoshop. I want to replace a short portion of the top of a black turtleneck sweater with the adjacent skin color. In other words, lower the height of the turtleneck on the neck. Skin color is very light white. I have tried th patch tool, but it does not change the balck to the white skin color. It just lightens the black slightly. Any ideas on how to replace the balck with the light white?

    Try the Cloning Tool, or selection then copy/paste and move the layer with the pasted pixels.

    Yes, my first choice would be to select skin area, copy and paste.  Use control T to resize and rotate.

    Yes, I often clone first, on a separate layer, then heal/patch it for a better tone/texture continuity.
