"Help! How to fix this?"

Hi

I'm not a Photoshop expert and I've been trying to fix this (the rope behind the guy). I've been messing about with the clone tool, the smudge tool, the blur tool and the add noise tool. I've got it to a state where it is better than having the rope, but you can see the damage. The pic below is the original before I've tried to fix it.

Does anyone have any tips or can point me towards any tutorials which would help me with this situation?

Thank you

--Justin Wyllie

What version of photoshop are you using? If you are using CS6 then content aware fill is going to be your best bet. Mask out the people first and then try the content aware fill. Here is a short video on how to do it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7quTryYs-GI

Ok. Thanks. That was my problem and that is the solution. That is to say I gave up on the Content Aware tool because it was picking up the jacket. This masking technique is precisely what I needed. Thanks.

This is the first attempt. Needs more work but much better than what I was getting with my pathetic clone / blur / smudge approach. (-: Thanks again.

Elements 10 btw.
