This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Lightroom and Camera Raw: More Photoshop like clone/healing/content aware brushes

Sometimes I abuse the spot removal tool to remove other things than pimples. E.g. power sockets or hair. For that it would be great to have another mean of selecting the area which is to be healed/cloned.

I would like to have rectangle tool as well as a free hand tool to do that!

This has become the biggest feature request ever for Lightroom.

Takes different forms, but the underlying theme of "distraction removal" is ever-present.

Yep, definitely worth adding a vote to the "More Photoshop like clone/healing/content aware brushes in Lightroom!" feature request.

There is also another feature request, suggesting to add rotation support for the clone tool and I commented that this should be augmented with non-circular cloning/healing areas.

Yes, very good idea to have a rectangle and a free form for the selecting tool.

Please develope and release it.
