Tools used in this video:

Spot Healing Brush: This tool works just like a brush. When you dab or create a brush stroke, Photoshop will analyze the surrounding area, and attempt to replace your blemish with that information. For best results, the Spot Healing Brush should be used for smaller blemishes, such as pimples or thin cracks.

Healing Brush Tool: Similar to the Clone Stamp, the Healing Brush relies on a sample, initiated with an Alt/Option + click. This will give you more freedom and allows you to tell Photoshop where you want to heal from. The advantage over the Clone Stamp, is that the Healing Brush uses Photoshop’s Content-Aware technology for more accurate healing.

The Patch Tool: This healing tool lets you tell Photoshop which area of your photo you’d like to use as the source of the repair. You’re able to use any selection method of choice, including the Patch Tool’s freehand to choose what you want to heal. Once selected, drag the selection to the area you wish to replace it with.
