Using the Patch Tool (Adobe PS CS3)

The Patch Tool is excellent for image enhancement, it leaves no trace, given that you don't overdo it. It works by sampling the selected part of the image & blending it with the area you want to retouch. Here's how to use the tool in 3 simple steps.

1. Open an image you want to retouch, make sure to save it as another file, so that you don't overwrite the original.

2. Select the Patch Tool.

3. Select the blemished area, then drag it to the area you want to sample.

The flawed area will then blend-in with the sampled area thus correcting the flaws. You just need to redo the steps to further correct the other flaws.

It works like magic, it looks untouched even to the trained eye.
