Learn how to repair old photos in Photoshop using the Healing Brush, Spot Healing Brush, and the Clone Stamp Tools. Tools used in this tutorial: Spot Healing Brush: This tool works just like a brush. When you dab or create a brush stroke, Photoshop will analyze the surrounding area, and attempt to replace your blemish with that information. For best results, the Spot Healing Brush should be used for smaller blemishes, such as pimples or thin cracks. Healing Brush Tool: Similar to the Clone Stamp, the Healing Brush relies on a sample, initiated with an Alt/Option + click. This will give you more freedom and allows you to tell Photoshop where you want to heal from. The advantage over the Clone Stamp, is that the Healing Brush uses Photoshop's Content-Aware technology for more accurate healing. Clone Stamp: This tool lets you set the source of the heal, telling Photoshop exactly what to replace the affected area with. In the Clone Source window, (Window menu to Clone Source), you can also flip or rotate the source for advanced healing.
