    If you use the source point from a similar texture you will most likely get better results. In your example to repair the damage on the tree, use a source point from the tree trunk above or below where the damage is. Same thing with the roof of the house, take your source point from an undamaged part of the roof.

    Good overview. A few points, such as how the source tool stays in the selected place will be helpful for beginners. Your emphasis on selecting the correct size was important.

    Thanks for the video, but I'm not really very impressed by the results you're getting. You may repair the crease line but you also blur out the background. The reason I came here is because Mac Photos does such a very poor job compared to the old iPhoto, which worked on the same principle. I used to get much better results on that. Do you have any explanation for this? It used to be so that you could practically eliminate a crease line like that and still keep the integrity of the image.

    Eric: No way for me to compare them now, but I'd be shocked if iPhoto was better at this than today's Photos app. Maybe because photos back then had fewer pixels or just the photo I chose here.
