Task 7 How to Use the Healing Brush

The Healing Brush is built on the concept and functionality of the Clone Stamp tool: It paints using sampled data from a user-specified point. Instead of just moving the pixel information from one spot to the other as the Clone Stamp tool does, however, the Healing Brush actually blends the two data sets together, blurring information and smoothing the results. The Healing Brush does a great job of eliminating spots and scratches from scanned photographs, and it's also superb at touching up blemishes and wrinkles on faces. If you work with portraiture or photo restoration, you'll use this tool a lot.
