The healing brush tool for Photoshop CS6 does not work! Everytime I use it, the tool makes one spot but I cannot paint an area with it. It just freezes and does nothing. I have tried this with large and small files in 16-bit and 8-bit. I have adjusted Performance preferences to max out ram and tried all variations of video card performance and caching.
I am on a Mac iMac with the following specs:
3.1GHz Intel Core i5 Quad-Core
16GB RAM
1TB 7200rpm Hard Drive
8x SuperDrive DVD Burner, SDXC Card Slot
AMD Radeon HD 6970M 1GB GPU

It's working for everyone else.

Try resetting the tool (which will clear any tool options you may have forgotten changing).

If that doesn't work, try resetting all of Photoshop's preferences.

Thanks. I ended up running the uninstall and doing a new install of CS6. Seems to have solved the problem for the moment.
