Part 8. Flattering Your Subjects > Painting Problem Areas Away

Painting Problem Areas Away

Unlike the Spot Healing Brush, the Healing Brush tool requires you to paint back and forth across whatever you're trying to remove from the image. It's a better bet for fixing larger objects or areas that aren't completely surrounded by the same color or texture, such as tattoos, stray strands of hair, or distracting jewelry.

With a zoomed photo in the active image area, switch to the Healing Brush tool or press J.

Choose a brush size somewhat smaller than the area you want to fill in.

Alt-click in a clear area of skin to choose a source for the new pixels.

Click and drag across the area to paint it with texture copied from the source area.
