Retouching in Lightroom 5: Using the Advanced Healing Brush

Lightroom 5 brought with it an improved healing brush and this video by Colin Smith from the photoshopcafe shows a few of the things that you can do with the new brush.

This is not the first time we are looking at the healing brush in Lightroom 5 (see Adobe’s own video here) but in this case you can actually see some real retouch work on a portrait picture as a very good example of the sort of use you might have for the new healing brush.

You can check out many more Lightroom tutorials on our Lightroom section here on LensVid.
