This may be self-evident to everyone else, but I was curious how the spot healing and adjustment brush objects would interact with the transform tools.
The linked image shows the result of a local spot healing or adj brush followed by a transform. My observation is that the center of each adjustment moves as expected with a transform, but the shape of the "spot" is changed by the transform while the shape of the "brush" is not.
The images show the result of a local adjustment done before the transform, but I saw the same result in the reverse order.
If you transform first then apply an adjustment brush, you get the expected round shape from a round brush. However, if you transform then spot, you actually lay down a transformed (stretched) "spot".
This would imply that on a real image you should transform before applying local adjustment brushes.
I looked back at the Adobe LR Performance Hints referenced recently in this forum, and Adobe actually states to do spot healing before geometry before adjustment brushes - it turns out this affects functionality, not just performance.
