To heal or to clone?

After taking a bunch of product shots in the studio at work, I’m processing them.  Doing the usual, spotting, sharpening, color correcting… It’s been a little while since I’ve done a significat amount and realizing that for spotting, the Spot Healing tool is the first tool you go to. But you know what? Sometimes, there is a spot/dust in a place where the Healing function operates kinda weird and does some blurring that is too noticeable. That’s when you gotta switch to the tried and true, CLONE tool! It’s more “manual” and sometimes can be very tricky to align up a perfect spot, but when it works, it can be perfect.

So remember kids, that it’s about using ALL the tools in your tool box, not just the easiest or newest!
