How To Do It :

 

1. Open a picture ( Thanks Pixie for providing me this sample picture  ! ) in Paint.NET. For this tutorial I cropped some of the area to make my work with clone stamp a lot easier.

Choose your selection area by clicking the area and bring your cursor as far as you can/want.  

 


3. Click on the selected area and move your cursor until the selected area 'moving'. Move it until you find an area that matched/suitable. Do the things until you're done with all cracks or dots.

I hope it is ok to ask this here....I attempted to download Wireworm and the site is gone.  Is there an equivalent to this plugin available somewhere, or does anyone have it on their site?
