No cloning required in the method described on that site. I've been using it, and only a few photos have I had to use a bit of touchup with the healing brush. It's like a minor miracle.
My naming method is simply descriptive because dates aren't important due to how I use photos. However, if I were a photo journalist or other kind of professional photographer, I bet the date would be vital. Heck, I often don't even know what month or week or day it is.
4. Be Cautious!
If you have a fine, irregular texture in the background, you can stop here. Grass, rippled water or earth textures can be restored nicely this way. If, on the other hand, you have a relatively regular texture (as in this example), it is best to get your hands on the Healing Brush tool (press J). Take a sample from a part that has a similar structure (just like we have shown you before), by Alt+Click-ing, and cloning the texture to the transformed area with fine clicks.
Finishing the process with the clone tool is a choice that may depend on how picky one is about the end results. Maybe for some it's not all that important and that's ok. Personally, I don't see the reason for the selection and blur steps if I'm going to use the healing/clone tool anyways. Using that tool makes it just one step and might be less clicking work.
The content aware fill tool doesn't work miracles in all instances either. That also depends on the image.
I can sympathize about not updating software all that frequently. The cost to do that every year is prohibitive and it's not getting any cheaper!
