Healing Brush Broken?
« on: July 18, 2021, 07:16:30 am »

Lightroom Classic 10.3 (the latest)

Healing brush most of the time delivering strange, unusable results:

Not seeing that here on Win 10 and LrC 10.3.

Have you tried a preferences reset?

Weird.

The Lightroom healing brush normally grabs its repair from an area it considers similar.  Slobodan, have you tried moving the source to another part of the image ?

Although the healing brush in Lightroom is quite good I find that Photoshop's often works more consistently and better.

Of course. It is even worse.

I solved the problem with this particular image by doing it in LR Mobile, on my phone, would you believe!

I tried other images, same problem.

Another example, where LR selected the area:

And even if I select the area, right next to it, still doesn't work:

I've got version 9.4 of Lightroom.

I just tried healing a piece of lightly textured wall and saw the same thing.  Then I realised I had 'Clone' selected rather than 'Heal'.  Once I changed the repair to Heal the hard edge disappeared and it merged perfectly.

Slobodan, I wonder if your Lightroom has got its selection of Clone or Heal mixed-up or the preferences file has become corrupt ?

I tried both... Clone works as supposed.

Have you tried increasing the feathering to see if that makes any difference?

I did, and no difference.

Maybe something got corrupted. I have had a couple of times when Adobe programs start doing weird things (Photoshop, LR, Premiere, etc.) and I just reinstall the faulty program, and so far it solved the issue.
