Hi all,

On the image below, you can see where I erased the logo that was initially on the image. I can't figure out how to blend it so you can't see that I erased it. I've tried using the cloning tool, which helped, but didn't look perfect. Any suggestions on how to accomplish a seamless look?

Thanks in advance.

Fig 1 is the image you posted. To confirm that there was minimal detail in the side of the truck the Channels were checked after making a dupe layer.

 

The Green channel is Fig 2. Note the detail… vertical line pattern in the side of the truck that should be maintained and/or recreated.

 

Fig 3 is an Alpha channel to make the lines easier to define.  Moved to the Alpha image to the Layers panel and rotated it so that the lines in the truck were vertical.

 

Used the rotated top layer as a reference for rotating the full color image. Fig 4. 

The result is Fig 5.

 

Selected a horizontal strip of the lines shown in Fig 6 and used it with Edit > Transform > Distort to drag down the lines and include the total area to be corrected. The result is shown in Fig 7

 

Used the bottom layer and Difference blending mode, Fig 8 & 9 this time to return the truck to its inclined position.

 

Fig 10. Final image.

@JJMack Thank you for your response.

Please forgive me, I'm a novice.

Is there a tutorial that you could reference that would take me through what you're suggesting step by step?

I don't know how to add a layer to cover the logo. 

 

Thanks again!
