Hi.
Does the new healing tool work like the brush in CS5-6?
I would really love to see a tool that can do other than heal just dots and straight lines.
We need it.

I constantly see ideas posted here that ask for implementation that is currently working in another adobe product.

Certainly there's a need for lots of tools that are either the same, or very similar. However, LR is photographic, PS graphics and obvious photo manipulation.

If you want these higher priced tools and features, does it not make sense to use the more featured product. Ok, so you haven;t got the budget to shell out of a full blown PS, that's understandable. PS Elements?

I wouldn't want to see two products share such a large amount of feature space and there's always going to be a point where a program does everything a client needs, bar that one thing that is in the higher priced product. That's life as Frank said.

The new heal brush in LR is better than in 4, although I would only really heal dust and specks in LR, anything that needed actual manipulation would always be a job for PS.

Iv'e got CS5.
It's just disturbing that one have to switch back and forth every single time i have to clone something not shaped as a dot.

If by setting up your 'Edit with' prefs, ensuring you have the correct colour space etc, right click means you can switch between the two, saving the file as an edited image in LR. It's a fairly smooth workflow, it's not like you have to open an image in PS by searching for where the file resides.

I do that now.
If we are streamlining the workflow i dont see why not having yhe tool right there at the tip of your finger. :)
I can agree that today its fairly quick/easy to access but i don't think like that when developing/designing stuff.
I don't want to settle for allmost perfect. :)
