Healing brush on pixel level?

Hi guys

I have been cleaning up my portraits (faces) with healing brush for the larger spots.. then I D&B-ed with curves and usually I then take the cloning tool and dive into pixel level and use 3 pixel wide cloning tool and make every dark part lighter and light part darker according to the surround color.. this made sure that I wasn't lightening the already light parts (and vice versa) like dodging and burning does..

but now I tried the healing brush on pixel level, 3x wide.. and it seems to be very efficient! Anybody else tried this or are doing this?

Hi Jaimie and welcome to RetouchPro. Yes, you can do some pixel level D&B with the healing tools. I found particularly good use for the Spot Healing Brush with the Content Aware option in the tool bar checked. You need the right type of image for it to work on but it can save you a huge amount of time. Please check out this thread on RP.
Regards, Murray
