Photoshop CS 5
I enjoyed this lesson, Sara. "Content aware fill" alone is worth the CS5 upgrade. Previously I have used
"Image Doctor" for cloning & filling in; when I did Sonja's "Filter Frenzy" course & I bought the software but in Photoshop CS 5 you can not use it , also with new features of CS5 one does not need it at all!
I was a bit nervous regarding painting, but have attempted what I could. One thing you are right about
on page 29 under heading Wet: with the default setting 50% nothing was painted till I changed it to 0% (as you say), before any colour will show up on the canvas! So I think it is worth changing to low numbers to start with.

After Content Aware Fill:
BTW, I use backspace (PC) or delete (Mac) after selection to use this Content Aware Tool.
Painting with Mixer Brushes
I had to search hard to find an image which had only very few elements to paint as I am no good as a painter!!

Please note, I have only painted 2 oranges and 3 top leaves, not the background
or the bottom two leaves!!
