Healing Brush in Photoshop CS5

The Healing Brush tool works in a very similar way to the Clone Tool tool. However, this tool is even better! Not only does it copy pixels from one area and clones them to another it also matches texture, lighting, transparency and shading of the sampled pixels to the source pixels. The repaired area blends in a lot better with the rest of the image. If we use the Healing Brush on the final image we created in the Clone Tool example we can see a clear improvement between the two.
