Photoshop has a tool that works like the healing brush except that it
doesn't require a source region to be specified before using the tool.
When there are a lot of quick touch-ups to do, this is very convenient.
Photoshop somehow guesses what it should use as source material and is
often accurate. When it's not accurate, users can undo it, and then
fall back on the healing brush and manually specify that information.
It might be a better idea to make this an option to the healing tool
rather than creating a separate tool, but the functionality this
provides can save a lot of time and mouse strokes.
So what do you think?
