I have just found out how to remove unwanted items like scars on faces, or rubbish on a lawn using Adobe Photoshop’s clone stamp.

Oh my goodness! Chickenpox!

Do you want to know how to do that?
Here are easy steps with pictures.

Then, click on the ‘clone stamp’ tool.

Alt + Click near the closest spot to the pox, to clone it. After that, click on the pox. If the lighting or color doesn’t seem right, select another likely spot to clone.

    I must say, that I can not agree with you in 100%, but that’s just my IMHO, which indeed could be wrong.
    p.s. You have a very good template for your blog. Where have you got it from?
