Cloning and Healing in Photoshop
Photoshop Perfection: Basic thru Intermediate
Now You Can Learn How To Effectively Clone in Photoshop
Are you ready to put the power of cloning to work in your next Photoshop project?
If so, this tutorial is your go-to source, because it dives into amazing detail about the topic of cloning. Using my 20+ years of experience with Photoshop, we’ll cover anything and everything related to cloning—not just the basic stuff you’ll find on YouTube.
If you’re truly intent on becoming a Photoshop retouching professional, you should understand that the Clone Stamp Tool is not the only way to achieve your goals—in fact, it may not always be your best option for achieving the best results. Photoshop features several different Clone Tools that you need to master, and this video will help you do just this.
Throughout the video, several tools are dissected and analyzed, including:
|Clone Stamp Tool – The Clone Stamp is the oldest, and most effective—cloning tool within Photoshop, primarily because it puts you in complete control. While there is almost nothing this little tool can’t do, it can take years to truly master the art. I’ll get you well on your way.|
|Spot Healing Brush – By taking a sample from the area around it, the Spot Healing Brush Tool can help remove unwanted blemishes from within your photograph. However, because it is an automated tool, its usefulness for retouching purposes is limited.|
|Healing Brush – My personal favorite, the Healing Brush tool allows you to fix imperfections such as dust and scratches. Unlike the Spot Healing Brush, you are allowed to select your own sample area, and apply it to wherever you need. Then, Photoshop mixes the color and texture of the two areas together, which can produce some amazing results.|
|Patch Tool – A combination of the Lasso and Healing Brush Tools, the Patch Tool corrects the image using a sampled area. While it definitely has limitations, if you don’t know what to do or are working inside gradients, this is the tool for you.|
|Content Aware Fill – Frankly, the Content Aware Fill is one of my least favorite cloning tools, primarily because it is completely automated and provides the user with zero control. The Content Aware Fill uses Photoshop’s artificial intelligence, and has been expanded with CS6 and CC.|
|Vanishing Point – The Vanishing Point Filter is used to clone within a perspective on a dimensional plan, which works very well for architectural projects. Simple and easy to use, once your grid is laid out, you can quickly clone in three-dimensional space.|
|High Pass and Low Pass – If you want to create perfect skin within an image, the High Pass and Low Pass tools are an advanced method of accomplishing this. These tools provide you with the ability to edit details, while leaving color behind.|
Lead by Example

What this video tutorial is: All your cloning options will be explained in detail, including heavy coverage about skills and best practices. This video is fully edited content, which means it gets directly to the point, in straightforward language that everyone will enjoy. In addition, all the topics are intended for Photoshop CC, CS6, CS5, and most of these tools are available in CS3 and CS4, which means that there’s no need to worry if you have an older version.
