How to repair a torn photograph in photoshop CS4?

Like the movie...rate it now

I have a very old photograph and there is a VERY prominent tear across the face of one of the people in the picture. I do not have the artistic ability to actually draw in a mouth to make it match this black and white photograph is there any tips or tricks that I might not know to help me? I am very proficient in photo shop I just am not very good at the restoration just yet.

  1. Clone stamp tool of course. But then again, it depends on the level of damage. If it’s just the mouth and not so much damage, you can make it with the stamp tool and won’t be noticeable. But if the damage is much bigger then you might want to use another photograph of this person. In any case, make a youtube search for the stamp tool and you will find many video tutorials
