    I have a shot where the sky is mostly cloudy. It has power lines running thought the shot. Normally I can just clone them out but with the clouds it just doesn't look right. Is there another way in CS3 to remove them?

    Cloning is the way. Just zoom in around 600% and clone almost pixel by pixel. This way you can easily match the color of the nearest pixel and use the brush size of 2-3.

    Yes, I agree with Romeo

    On the full size you should get in close as suggested and it should come out ok.

    I would suggest a soft brush may work best...

    Well, its still looking bad. Is there a way to blend the colors after cloning the lines out?

    I LIKE it -- good work

    You lost a little detail in the clouds, but it really looks nice...wouldn't change it.

    Thanks Peano. The healing brush worked wonderfully. I haven't gotten the colors corrected though.
