► Note

This first incarnation of the Healing Brush tool is really quite simple and can only be used with a normal, round brush. This means you don't have access to the entire Brushes palette when using the Healing Brush. Instead, click the brush in the Options bar to edit its size, diameter, angle, hardness, spacing, and roundness.

Shape Tools

Unlike strokes painted with the Brush or Pencil tool, shapes are easy to select, edit, and move independently of each other, because shapes—like paths drawn with the Pen tool—are object-oriented and vector-based. This also means shapes are resolution-independent and can be printed with crisp edges at any size or resolution.
