  • Tricky pattern or what?

    Hi Guys!

    I have problem with this texture. I don't know maybe my PS is broken? Often I use healing tool brush on split mode to improve skin or remove some imperfections from photo. Now i have this texture (it is cut form original full image) and it doesn't work...

    I tried Healing tool brush (with split and without) and it did some color blemish...

    and tried more...

    and more color side effect ;/

    Is the clone stamp only tool that I can use? I want use Split HP with Healing tool brush to protect texture.

    split frequency is vastly over used and probably what's messing you up. I mean use it if you want, but it's certainly not needed for what you're showing here. Just make a blank clone layer and use a SMALL clone or heal brush set to current layer and below. That dot is tiny, use a tiny brush.

      This has to be the worst I've seen in a long time. You don't need to split anything. I know some on here argue its advantages, but it doesn't prevent you from messing up the image. There is also nothing inherently less destructive about the healing brush. They're all just pixels. It is sloppy to cover an area 5 times the size when you just want to remove something tiny. A small clone stamp would be the easiest way to do this. Beyond that stop focusing too much on the tools. They are just there to enable your goals.

      I'll say it once more for emphasis. There is nothing about split frequency that prevents you from screwing up the texture. In the end you still have to rely on your own judgement. The reason I say this is because as soon as you start painting on one, it affects the look of the overall image. There's no way to ensure against an undesirable impact.

        I used split frequency and the blemish is gone.

          Am I supposed to have user name and password to see it?

          Anyway, OP, use the batch tool, takes 1 sec to do.

              Confused please help:)

              Hello. I have a question concerning the healing brush. When do you use it?? I get feeling that more and more people use it rarely and prefer the cloning tool. I watched a show with chris orwig and he used spot and healing brush a lot on small blemishes. But then i watched C.tarantino show and he preferred...

              Another question...the healing brush.
              by kneff
              I watched the video of Feature Enhancing by Jack Davis several times and took notes. I did learn alot from this, but somewhere, I 'm not working the healing brush correct. I want to use it to take out a mark that shouldn't be on the photo. So, as he says, I don't have the aligned clicked so it isn't...

              What is the main difference between spot healing brush tool and clone stamp tool? Which should be used for retouching any face in Photoshop?

              Healing Brush
              by Doug Nelson
              We're starting to see Challenge entries that mention the PS7 healing brush. For those that have it, what are your initial opinions?

              No one has mentioned the patch tool, yet.

              Blurring with clone stamp tool
              by Caravaggio
              Since working with the clone stamp tool at less than 100% opacity is blurring, I am wondering if cloning with the clone stamp tool at full opacity, but with a low flow is also a form of blurring? Is this a bad practice? I sometimes do this to smooth out transitions in wrinkled clothes when the transitions...
