14/50 – Additional Secrets of the Advanced Healing Brush (Spot Removal Tool) in Adobe Camera Raw in Photoshop CC

In the video below, we can see that the Camera Raw team has made even more refinements to the  Advanced Healing Brush (Spot Removal Tool) in Camera Raw in Photoshop CC.  These improvements include a new Feather slider to control the softness of the edge when cloning or healing areas of an image as well as improvements in the way that the Advanced Healing Brush determines the auto source location (the area that it clones/heals from), so that it now works better for images with textured areas. And, if the image has been cropped, the Advanced Healing Brush will bias the selection of the auto source location from within the crop rectangle (as opposed to auto-choosing image areas outside the crop). Note: tapping the Forward Slash key (/) will automatically select a new source for the selected circle or brush spot.
