Project 27: Old Photo Repair

Using the CLONE STAMP, SPOT HEALING TOOL, and the SPOT HEALING BRUSH to fix this photo to get rid of the damage and cracks. Remember that each tool has its uses; SPOT HEALING for specks, HEALING BRUSH for areas where you can sample the origin, and CLONE STAMP for making copies of pixels exactly. 

This is my in-progress sample. I have more work to do, but the sky looks pretty good and I have been able to get rid of a lot of cracks. Take your time and make sure that you duplicate the background layer first! Always edit on a copy, not the original.
