I have always used CS5 for healing brush as prior versions of LR were not very good. I understand this is suppose to be better in LR5. But still having trouble figure it out. Seems so simple in CS5.

Any suggestions on how to use easily??

I'm not using LR5, but others have said that the healing brush is a real improvement.

The one issue that comes up here is that some people get serious "slow downs" when they do a lot of brush work in LR5. Others don't, so it's system problems that something in LR5 brings to the surface.

You can either just click on the item you want to remove just like before, or click and paint over the item like in Photoshop.
Keep in mind that it's a little buggy and might slow to a crawl.
Hopefully, Adobe's upcoming patch next week will help.

I must be doing something wrong. In Photoshop it's easy. You just brush over. In LR5 I can't figure out the way it works

It looks so much diff than PS

To my understanding, speaking as a LR4 user who was initially "sold" on the healing brush but then changed my mind after seeing it in action: It's still not a "healing brush" as we understand it in Photoshop. If you're comparing to Photoshop, it's more like the patch tool than the healing brush. To heal an area, you have to select the area to be healed, and then the source area that will supply the "healed" look. If you don't have a clean source area, the healing brush won't be able to figure out how to make up new pixels to put there.

It's like the LR4 spot healing, but it just doesn't have to be a circle any more.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong. For me, this is a make-or-break selling point for LR5.

Well, it is always going to be the case that PSCS will have some tools that are better than similar or parallel tools in LR and PSE, just as the upholstery is softer and posher in a Cadillac than a Chevrolet. Hopefully, the pressure of competition from other software makers will act to speed up the trickle-down.

Heh! I like your analogy:)!

Even though I've never bought a "luxury" auto, you gotta admit that good high-quality upholstery is a pleasure to ride in (or sleep in or sit and lounge in)!

I still find the healing brish in LR5 to be lacking, and still go to PS for those functions. It's much better then LR4, but it's not quite there yet.


If steroids are illegal for athletes, should PS be illegal for models?
