One of the most talked about enhancements
in recent releases of Photoshop has been the Healing tool. Almost
like magic, the tool can help users make corrections to scratches,
dust, spots, wrinkles, birthmarks and other image flaws without
a lot of adjustment and fuss. You simply sample a donor area (like
you would with the clone tool) and then apply the sample to a target
to cover the damage. Before the correction is completed, Photoshop
compares the clone and the original, and makes a smart correction
that fits better with the image than cloning or manual adjustment
Until now, Elements users have only heard
about what Healing can do. But, with the release of the Hidden Power
Mend tool, Elements users can experience the same type of corrective
power without having to save up hundreds of dollars to purchase
The Mend tool helps users make quick work
of difficult corrections just like Healing can. Like the Healing
tool, the Mend tool actually compares the sampled area (clone) with
the target and makes adjustments based on the content of the image.
These adjustments help the correction blend into the image seamlessly,
making for better corrections, and faster image editing. Mend can
save hours at the computer and can free up time for the more creative
aspects of image editing.
The Mend tool is the first and only tool
of its kind for Elements users. You can get it for just $10. To
help you see what it can do, I've included a short tutorial
and demonstration, the release notes
for the Mend tool, and a link where you can buy
your copy. If you need more convincing, download the sample
image, and try to make the corrections with your current tools.
Chances are you'll spend hours making corrections that took only
minutes with the Mend tool.
