Road Repair

Road Repair
I have a picture of a road that has repaired cracks and patches that I need to remove (make look like the rest of the road surface). I was hoping there was a tool that would pick up a sample of the texture and overpaint the flaws with it, but there doesn't seem to be. I see that I can paint over the areas with a eyedropper selected color and then paint in hundreds of little white and darker gray flecks. By blending each fleck, it actually looks pretty good, but I'll be a lot older by the time I finish. Is there a better way?

It's a dumb photo, I agree, but it's going to serve a purpose, so I need to fix it.

RE: Road Repair
There are the Clone (Clone), the Heal (Heal), and the Perspective Clone (Perspectiveclone) tools for that. For the first two, Ctrl-click the image where you want to source the copy, then brush over the area to repair. Best used with a fuzzy brush.

The clone tool was the first thing I tried, but all I got was a solid gray. Now I see that the eyedropper function was working along with it. I hadn't used the eyedropper, but I guess stuff happens. I'm all set now. Thanks.
