I'm tearing my hair out. I've used resynthesizer in the manual filters->map mode many times, but go for long periods of time between needing to use it. In the past, sometimes I can get it to work, but I have problems getting it to work with. I've gone back and forth between creating a new pictures for the selected input, and also using a layer in the same photo. Either seem to work at times, almost like it's random, which I'm sure it's not. When it works, it works fabulous, otherwise I can kill hours trying to find the right combination of selections and layers until something MIGHT eventually work. Right now I'm giving up for the time being. This is important as I have a client waiting for a photo to be post-processed. There are some online tutorials, but none of them work exactly as advertised.
Can anyone with experience solving this problem help?
