CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X8 – Retouching with the Healing Clone

November 20, 2019 6 By Peter Engel


Retouching with the Healing Clone The new Healing Clone tool in Corel PHOTO-
PAINT lets you fix imperfections seamlessly by painting with sampled texture that matches the
color and texture of the surrounding area. Whether you want to remove a blemish, scar, or
unwanted spot, you can accomplish your task
with ease. Similarly to the Clone tool, when you use the
Healing Clone tool, two brushes appear in the
image window: a source point brush and a target brush. The source point brush, distinguished by a
crosshair pointer, samples the texture from the
source point. The target brush applies the sampled texture,
matching it to the color of the surrounding area. You can reset the source point, and you can use
the same source point for consecutive brush-
strokes. As with other brush tools in Corel PHOTO-
PAINT, you can adjust the size of the brush by
holding down the Shift key. You can also modify brush attributes such as
nib and dab properties, in the Brush Settings
docker. When using big brush nibs, you can also
disable the Realtime preview to improve
performance.
