Default Can someone help me with a CS5 question?

I am trying to take the steeple in this photo and move it over to another area in the image.. What is the best tool to outline the steeple and then what do I do once I draw around it? I almost only use LR3... Thanks in advance!

Here is my issue - I highlighted the steeple with lasso and used the move tool to move it over. Then I used content aware to fill in where the steeple used to be. Then I tried to use the spot healing brush and the clone stamp tool to clean up the area around the steeple but it wouldn't do anything?? I would click the mouse and try and use the tool but NOTHING would happen. I closed the image and reopened it fresh, and the same tools seem to work fine! They just won't work after I complete the moving of the steeple. What is going on?

You probably still have the steeple selected, what version of photoshop are you using?

I just used the clone stamp tool. First I cloned the steeple to another spot and then cloned an area close to the original steeple and used that to clone out the steeple.

You could even try content aware. Just select it copy it and paste it to a new doc ( so you can paste it later). Then keep the selection and hit delete and fill with content aware.

One thing with Photoshop, there are about 50 ways to get the same thing.

On a side note how do you like that fuji x10? I gotta get a compact.

It's definitely not an SLR but I like it for what it is... I use it for taking snapshots and that's about it.

One more thing guys... Whenever I edited this in photoshop, I lost a lot of the detail in the clouds. The image looks a lot better in Lightroom as the RAW file. After I edit it in photoshop I can't get the image back to look the way it was in Lightroom as far as colors and details go.

Do you have some specific lightroom settings that are applied on import?

I chose to edit the photos with the lightroom settings applied.

Just thought of this - I can export the original raw from LR3 as a JPEG and edit that JPEG with CS5... instead of just trying to edit the raw file directly.

Update: worked perfectly.

True but now your editing a jpg instead of a RAW file. You can just check the settings your applying in LR and do the same in PS
