Cleaning the Seams - Adobe Photoshop

The next step is to clean up the seams. Use the Clone brush and the Patch/Healing tool to get rid of the obvious offset demarcation.

  1. Press J to switch to the Healing tool. For inside the bricks or the middle of the grout, use the Healing tool and make the pattern seamless.
  2. The Healing tool’s toolbar icon is a bandage—completely apropos for the way it works! The brush effect has been digitally augmented for better visibility.

  3. Move your cursor to the center of a good brick that is similar to the brick you’re trying to heal and press Option(Win:Alt)
    down while clicking the area.
  4. Move your brush cursor to the seam and brush away.

Do you prefer to do chunks at a time?

  1. Press Shift+J until the Healing tool rotates to the Patch tool.
  2. Use the patch’s lasso-like behavior and define an area that you would like to heal.
  3. The Patch tool is good for healing big sections all at once.

  4. Drag the patch to an area that has the look you want. You see the original area update to show you how it looks there.
  5. Release the mouse button to set the patch. When you are done with the Patch tool, press Command+D(Win:Ctrl+D) to deselect the patch area. When you are all done, the seam is no longer visible.

Note:If you try to use the Healing brush for the brick edge, you lose your sharp edge.Make sure that your Clone tool is within the top 10 percent opacity (90–100 percent; I generally like to use 100 percent for the best detail).

You can see that effect in . Use the Clone tool to paint a smooth or natural edge to the brick.

The Clone tool’s effect is clear in. A more opaque brush may make the cloned areas soft and mushy.Good for oatmeal, but not for images.
