This is awesome, I've had photoshop for years and only now do I know that it has a healing brush, I thought it was a clone tool or something

Yeah I've never quite understood why the clone tool is so much more popular than the healing brush. The healing brush in 'replace' mode makes the clone tool obselete imo. I'm sure there's some simple things I have yet to discover, too. I've had little professional training when it comes to Photoshop.

Very comprehensive if a little wordy. And for those who only have Photoshop elements it' the cloner tool rahter than the healing brush that we'd use to fix up pimples.

There's not healing brush? Photoshop has a clone tool and a healing brush. The clone tool works the same as the healing brush set on 'replace'.

Elements 2.0 is old. I can genrally find some way to get around not having certain tools, but it is a reall bugger for making space art, particuly planets that need the patern brushes.
