1. To ‘heal’ an imperfection, select the Healing Brush tool. Use the Brush Preset Picker to choose a brush size. Select a blending mode if required. Use Replace mode to preserve the texture, noise and any film grain at the edges of the brush strokes. Leave the Source option set to Sampled to use pixels from within the image.
2. Select Aligned in the Options Bar (see the Adobe Clone Stamp Tool).
3. Position your cursor on an area of the image that you want to sample from in order to repair the imperfection. Hold down Alt, then click the left mouse button. This sets the sample area of pixels.
4. Release the Alt key. Move your cursor over the area you want to repair. Click, or press and drag to repair the area. When you click or drag the mouse the (+) indicates the area of the image you are sampling pixels from.
