Repairing the crack

There's no hard-and-fast rule on where to start your restoration. Sometimes it's better to get some of the easier stuff out of the way, and sometimes things are better if you tackle the harder bits first. In this case we'll work on the large crack first. Let's begin by adding a blank layer on top of our Background layer, by going here to Create a new layer and clicking on it. And go over to your toolbar and select the Clone Stamp tool. Let's zoom in a little, using Ctrl+Plus or Command+Plus, and bring that into focus now.

Use your Alt or Option key to select your clone source, and you can adjust your brush using your open and close bracket keys. And then just start cloning away at the rip. Go from both the sides. Change your brush size often, and your source points. Be careful around edges like the hairline, because they do curve. You don't want to just go straight. And just keep cloning it out in small pieces; don't try to get too much in one stroke.
