Photoshop: Clone Stamp And Heal Brush

PhotoshopIcon Photoshop: Clone Stamp And Heal BrushPhotoshop: Tidying Up Images

How many times do you have images which require a little touch up?  Take me for example I think I am a reasonably handsome fellow but on a photograph I look like the swamp thing! The old adage “the camera never lies” is very true but at the same time it would not hurt for the camera to be a little bit more forgiving with the flash!

So what do you do?  You need to alter the image partially (or a lot if I am in the photo simple smile Photoshop: Clone Stamp And Heal Brush ).  When you get down to altering parts your images in Photoshop it is important to work out the differences between certain tools. In this video we shall tackle the differences between the Photoshop tools “Clone Stamp” and the “Healing Brush”.

The Photoshop Cleaning Tools

Both of these Photoshop tools are designed to tidying images, whether it’s an ugly picture of me or lens flare or even a car whooshing by on a vista which ruins the whole scenic vista your taking.  So it is quite difficult sometimes to choose the correct tool to use.  I work with the following attitude:

  1. Large chunks of the image needs adjusting.
    Use the Photoshop Clone Stamp.
  2. Small part of the image blemishes or lens flare.
    Use the Photoshop Healing Brush

Another way of thinking about it which is much more out there is to consider the Clone stamp as a Sergeant Major barking orders and will move mountains to get the job done, the problem with that is you tend to leave quite a bit of carnage where he has been! Whereas, the Healing brush is more like a mediator, takes both sides of the argument and finds middle ground.

Depending on your scenario will depend on which Photoshop tool to use. So watching this video should give you a better insight into how these tools differ!

    Ho, you change the size of brush with the following keys “[” to make smaller and “]” to make larger. Also to zoom in and out use CTRL + “+” and CTRL + “-” (in on Mac then cmd + “+” and cmd + “-“) Hope this helps!
