and Top of the Head
The forehead and the top of his head - primarily with the Spot Healing Brush.
Zoomed in on the eyes and any damage was removed with the Spot Healing Brush.
This was one of the tough areas and both the Spot Healing Brush and the Clone Tool were used.
Before cloning, the small spots around the big and messy area were cleaned up with the Spot Healing Brush set to Content Aware.
The left side of the head was much easier and the Spot Healing Brush took care of it quickly.
That nasty, big scratch is mostly gone and it took a lot of Spot Healing, some cloning and a selection.
The part against the background was easy to remove.
The part that crossed over the ear and the left side of the mouth caused more problems.
The damage to the left side of the lips was repaired with a patch that was taken from the right side of the lips.
This area moved quickly with the Spot Healing Brush.
Arm and Background
Mostly done with the Clone Tool after some Spot Healing clean up.
The areas where two really different colors meet were Cloned rather than Spot Healed.
The Clone Tool and Spot Healing Brush were both used in this area.
Little bits were Spot Healed and the big area was Cloned.
More than one layer was required to fix things in this area.
More of the big scratch is gone as is the damage in the background.
The Clone Tool was used at the edge of the shirt.
I had some difficulty with the area where the neck and the collar meet - the area was worked with the Clone Tool.
Somehow the neck became too large and looked weird.
Lots and lots of in-tight cloning. It was necessary to make sure the shadows on the shirt were maintained.
This area took a lot of close in work with the Clone Tool.
The neck and collar area that needed more work was repaired.
The shadow areas on the shirt were maintained.
The spots and scratches were somewhat difficult to see against the white of the shirt.
Some tight zooming located them and they gave way to the Spot Healing Brush and, in a couple of areas, the Clone Tool.
