The Spot Healing Brush Tool

There is a tool in Photoshop that is absolutely magical!  

It's called the Spot Healing Brush Tool and it can literally 'magically' remove spots and other marks on any image in seconds.

Here's How To Use It:

Let's look at the image of the leaf with the spots on it. The image next to it represents what it looks like after we have used the Spot Healing Brush Tool.

In the Layers panel, select the layer that contains the image of the spots or small objects you want to remove. Zoom in, using the Zoom tool (it's the magnifying glass underneath the hand) at the bottom of the tool panel.
