I have been trying to tidy up my pictures by cloning out branches, powerlines etc... However, there is always quite obvious marks left after there.
I have read online articles and used around 10 pixels clone stamp and sample from an area close enough but once zoomed out, still can tell that it has been 'doctered'.
Can any photographers here share with me your work flow (any special technique?), i.e.
1. Unsharp mask first? (What settings?)
2. Clone (Again what settings?)
3. Healing brush?
5. Add some noise?
6. Unsharp again?
Thanks in advance. Please don't start the whole clone human, clone animals joke (Can see that coming...Ha...Ha).
Sincerely appreciate any help.
