The author of this tutorial is Jacques F. Matijas (France).
Jacques had an excellent illustration of a scene overlooking the Côte d'Azur but the glass in the frame broke, which also damaged the picture. Thankfully he was able to use AKVIS Retoucher to repair and restore the image.
- First use the command Image -> Canvas Size to double the width of the canvas.
- Next switch to the other picture and select the image using any of the graphic editor's selection tools (for example, the Polygonal Lasso tool).
- Then use the Move tool to connect the selection with the left side of the image.
- Finally, merge the layers (Layers -> Merge All in the menu) and remove excess areas of the image using the Crop tool.
Adjust the settings and press to process the image. If an imprint remains where the tears were, correct them with the Clone Stamp and Chameleon Brush tools.
Apply the result by pressing and the image will be returned to the graphics editor.
