Using the "Patch" tool (hotkeyJ, switching between adjacent elements - Shift + J) it is convenient to replace large parts of images. Depending on which item is selected in the tool settings, "Source" or "Assignment", the way of work also changes. If the first one ("Source"), then you first need to circle the problem area, then drag it to the place where the "material for the patch" is located. If the second "Appointment", then on the contrary, you first circle the "material" itself, and then move it to the problem site.


Spot Repair ToolIt is better to use in cases where you need to eliminate some very small defect, for example, a point. It works as follows: when you cover a problem area, for example, a strip from a bend, the brush analyzes nearby areas and creates a result based on them. Experiment with the items "Corresponding. Approximation "," Creating a texture "and" Taking into account the contents "(they are in the tool settings) to achieve the desired effect.


The tool "Stamp" is similar to "Patch" - both of themBorrow "material" from undamaged areas. However, "Stamp" works on the principle of a brush, rather than cutting. Hold Alt and click once with the left mouse button in the area that will serve as the "material". Release the Alt and start painting the problem area.
