    Select the row of pixels that you want to streak and go to Edit > Define Pattern. Then select the area you want the streak to be and choose Edit > Fill... and then choose to Use: Pattern. I think that's how it works at least. :-)

    ~~Hope This Helps

    The simplest way is to select the left portion of the girl image and then with the enlarge tool just stretch the portion selected. This will give the streak effect but you will then have to clean up the area nearer the girl with the clone tool.

    1. Select Single Column Marquee Tool
    2. Place it at the spot you want to extract
    3. Ctrl+C then Ctrl+V
    4. Edit > Transform
    5. Stretch it to the left or right

    I would avoid using the Transform tool. This stretches the pixels and can sometimes leave transparent or slightly transparent spots in your image. The best way to get this effect is to:

    1) Select a column that is one pixel wide (or tall).
    2) Make sure the current tool is set to Marquee (press M), Hold down CTRL + ALT and press the left or right arrow. This will "move" and "copy" the current selection at the same time. Once you've got about 20 pixels wide, reselect the area and repeat step 2. But this time hold down SHIFT as well. This will "move and copy" 10 pixels at a time.

    creole, the single column marquee tool is a one pixel wide selection.

    That's fine...use that. But what I'm saying is don't use the transform tool.

    When you transform a 1px wide selection I don't get any transparant pixels.

    You have to understand how Photoshop performs these two actions.

    Doing it your way, you're stretching the pixels. This can cause them to antialias to a greater or lesser degree. When this happens, there's not enough of the pixel to go around sometimes causing holes or gaps.

    With my method, you're not stretching the pixel, you're simply duplicating it.

    But, if it works for you, that's great.
