Uses of Spot Healing Brush in Post-Processing

Post-processing of photographs involves different techniques and methods. The process depends on various aspects of the original image. There might be many reasons and defects to correct in the post-processing process. The most common of them are dark spots, ageing skin elements or any other component that distracting the balance of the photograph.

In cases of portrait photography, spot healing brush tool is the default and very effective tool which can be used to remove blemishes, wrinkles & other distracting elements. This brush is very efficient but in some cases, it is needed to introduce some extra level of control to get the intended result.

The basic idea of the brush tool is that the pixels from the targeted area get blended with the colour and luminosity around wherever you want to join. The primary difference between heal brush tool and the standard healing brush is that the spot healing brush requires no source points.

You can simply point the blemishes area you want to delete. To do that drag with the tool to paint over. And the larger areas you want to manipulate. And the spot healing brush works on its own from that. It is very effective to remove the unnecessary and blemish spots, wrinkles in the photograph.

There are some basic modes of operation when using the spot healing tool. Proximity max is the primary mode. It runs analysis on the picture data, around the area that select to remove. It identifies the best area to get the sample colour and luminosity to replace the defective pixels.

In different fashion the create texture mode works. The spot healing tool will be in the area to attempt, to generate a perfect texture pattern from the selected area. The main difference between the proximity Match repairs & blends using actual pixels.

I also mostly use the spot healing brush in the content aware mode to produce the finished photo, shown beneath brushwork. The content aware mode runs intelligent analysis on the photo by itself. It automatically figures out the defective areas in the photo. And fill the non-consistent areas with appropriate colours. It ends result is quite effective the certain amount of skill the brushwork.

The sky colour normally needs retouching. Using long, continuous brush strokes the photograph & perpetrate smoothly blended result. Retouching the rocks shorter brush strokes.

The clone areas the healing brush blend with the target areas. The basic principle is texture the sample area in brightness, the main image what you want. By using clone stamp tool, the healing brush works. To performs the tool’s magic sampling, the texture the source point & blend the sampled.
