Now you see it, now you don’t! How to Clone in Memory Manager

I just want to show you something cool:
my husband.
Just kidding.  I mean, that is him, but what I want to show you is the pole coming out of the top of his head.  Not so cute.  Been kind of bothering me.
But look at this!
Yep, I made him cut down the pole, and then re-shot the photo.
Just kidding again!  (Geez, I’m funny today, aren’t I?)
I actually used Memory Manager to take out the pole.  And it’s SOOOO easy!

Doesn’t it make the picture, like, 100x better?
So here’s how you do it.
In Memory Manager, click on the “Touchup” Ribbon.
Click “Clone.”  Change your brush size and pressure (I start with the largest brush size appropriate for the picture, and a light brush hardness, so it blends better.)  Then click the part you want to copy – that’s the + in the trees.  The 0 on the pole is where I’m going to copy the trees to.
“Paint” over the pole.  Your + will move as you paint.  If you need to pick a new location for the +, press shift and click the new point.
To get close to his head, zoom in, and make your brush smaller.
(And while you’re at it, add some more hair!  Just kidding again!  But this is totally cracking me up!!!)
If you mess up, just “undo last brush stroke.”  And when you’re done, click accept!

Cool, huh?
