I've been working on a small photo restoration project for my mom. It's a picture of her and her younger brother from 1956 that was creased in a few places, etc.

I don't have the original file for comparison, but here's where I'm at after cropping, adjusting levels, healing, and cloning:

The problem I'm running into is with my uncle's feet - they disappear into the grass. The original photo has a major crease going right across his feet, so I'm having a hard time finding anything to clone with.

I'm using Photoshop CS and open to any tips or suggestions.

Happy New Year!

Good luck with this project. I have several really old photos that I want to try to restore once I become more proficient with PS
