Replicating part of a subject/Object in an image
Hi all,

I have been using GIMp to do some basic things but have recent got a but stuck on how to best replicate part of a subject/object in an image. for example

I have an image of a corner of a building with the wall on the left and right, and sky at the top of the image. I would like to extend one of the walls out to extend the width of the image and also replicate the sky.

The walls are on a slight angle so I can not simply do a retangle block and copy/paste, also when I do this on the sky, the gradients of the paste dont match up nicely.

How would I best go about this??

I'd say your best bet is to straighten up the image (make all verticals strictly vertical) using the perspective tool in corrective mode, clone what you are interested in, which would be a lot easier, and re-apply perspective on the result. But you will get some quality loss in the process.

You can also copy/paste from the original image, and then use the perspective tool to fit the pasted layer in the original perspective.
