Lesson 7. Retouching and Repairing > Using the healing brush and patch tools

Using the healing brush and patch tools

The new healing brush and patch features in Photoshop 7.0 go one step beyond the capabilities of the clone stamp and pattern stamp tools. Using their ability to simultaneously apply and blend pixels from area to area, they open the door to natural-looking touchups in areas that are not uniform in color or texture.

In this project, you’ll touch up the stone wall, removing some graffiti and bullet holes marring its surface. Because the rock has variations in its colors, textures, and lighting, it would be challenging to successfully use the clone stamp tool to touch up the damaged areas. Fortunately, the healing brush and patch tools make this process easy.
