To create an image of a jar that appears to contain picalilli, I took an image of actual jarred picalilli (1) then cropped to show actual content only (2).  Using copy and paste I created a large area of picalilli (3) then used the spot healing tool to blur the joins (4).  I then duplicated this layer over to the main jar template (5) and created a selection around the jar (using magic wand on an existing jar shaped overlay, then inverting) and used this to crop the picalilli image to the exact shape of the jar (6).  The content was now too orange owing to the original chutney content, so I added a yellow overlay (7).
