    Default Stretch marks - Need these out!

    I have been able to get these stretch marks out the shots I've processed up till today! There is this shot and one more where I am slowly going bald here pulling my hairs out!

    Any advice please!! Most shots I was just able to clone but I just can't get it here. Keeps ending up funny looking..llike she's got an alien inside of her with ten feet! :(

    Have you tried using the healing brush AFTER using the clone tool. Usually, if the clone isnt enough, the healing brush works pretty well. Sometimes you have to do small sections at a time, but usually that works.

    Photography is more than just taking a picture and freezing the action, or leaving the shutter open. It is more than orchestrating the image with the stroke of a brush. Its the realization and explanation that reality is an isolated experience in which only a specific individual can comprehend during any given time period. - Your Truly!

    Yes, as JJ suggests try the healing brush, or also it's sister the patch tool. Here's one quick (took all of 15 seconds) example of the patch tool....
    You loosely select the area you want to fix using any selection tool you want (you might want to try one mark at a time as opposed to the way I did it selecting all of them at once) and find and select the patch tool (grouped with the healing tool in the tool menu) and click inside the selected area and drag it to a nearby patch of clear skin. It looks at first like you have a poor match but magically after you let go and wait a sec or two PS does it's thang and it ends up looking pretty good. You can see I didn't quite get it all, but I wasn't going for anything fancy.

    This is the end product (until I can get into my lightroom). I chose this slightly different photo. Didn't like how her ear was cut out in the first one..but mis the dof of the first one. Oh well..you win some and lose some

    Thanks for the help again you guys!
