Make a generous selection around the thin streak line with the Content-Aware Move tool (see example).
In the Options bar under Adaptation, enter 5 for the Structure option and 7 for Color.
Drag the streak to the left to see how it blends with its new surroundings.
The Adaptation Options control the blending of the pixels. A higher Structure value (1-7) maintains more of the copied edge pixels. A higher Color value (0-10) provides more color blending.
For the third image (the foliage image), select the Content-Aware Move Tool. In the Options bar, select Extend from the Mode menu.
Under Adaption, enter 5 for Structure and 8 for Color. The high Structure level will keep the foliage detailed, and the high level of color will ensure the foliage is well blended in to the existing foliage.
Move the brush over one end of the wire. Make sure the brush is larger than the wire. Right-click with your mouse (Control + click on Mac), or use the left [ and right ] bracket keys to change the brush size to about 64 px.
Click and drag to remove the first portion of the wire. Then repeat to remove the other end of the wire.
Set Adaptation values. Try Structure = 5, and Color = 4 for this image. The high structure level will keep the rigidity of the tree bark, and a medium color adaption will blend in with the surrounding colors.
With the Patch tool, draw a selection around the slug. Drag your selection to the right of its current position. Release the mouse button and Photoshop heals the area.
