In this video you will learn how to use three essential image cleanup tools in Adobe Photoshop. In this one you will learn to us the Content-Aware Spot Healing Brush, the Healing Brush, and the Clone Stamp to remove unwanted flaws and blemishes.
I need to emphasize here is that each program has its own strong suit. Yes, Lightroom and Adobe Photoshop share some common features but they are not competitors.

Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Classic is my tool of choice when working with digital camera raw files but Adobe Photoshop is still the world’s most powerful pixel manipulator. There is no other program like Photoshop for complete control over the look and feel of your digital image.
