I'm very unhappy with how the new healing brush handles areas of fine texture. Something about the way the edges transition from healed to non-healed is much worse since the update.

It really bad! In my example the healing brush puts in colored pixle... Like a rainbow pattern. It is so critical that I need to go back and use CS 6... THANKS GOD I STILL HAVE IT! because the CC 2015 update deleted CC 2014?!?

I hope enough people are having various problems that they let us reinstall 2014 while we wait for a fix. I expect problems with new software, what I didn't expect was to lose the working version I already had.

You can already reinstall CC 2014, or choose not to remove it when installing CC 2015.

I've not had any luck finding out how to do that. There's no apparent way to do it from the Creative Cloud desktop app. Can you point me to a link on the website?

Yes, you can do it from the Creative Cloud app, just show older versions and download.

I will downgrade right away to CC 2014... Thanks Adobe for testing things at the "real" people who are working with and depending on Photoshop works every day! This is such a basic thing that just HAS TO WORK!

In the Creative Cloud app, scroll down the Apps tab to "FIND ADDITIONAL APPS" - on the right where it says All Apps (or whatever it says) click and select VIEW PREVIOUS VERSIONS, from there you'll be able to install CS6, CC, or CC2014.

Is it just me or has the new healing brush changed in that it seems to be much more of a clone brush? the previous version in Photoshop CC 2014 seemed to do a better job of blending the textures together, for example when editing skin. Now it seems to just clone the source over the area i brush without any blending taking place. this is really bad.

That's' what I'm seeing as well. Very bad.

There's a lot to like about the new Healing Brush, when it works, it works great, and not having any surprises as soon as you lift the mouse button is most welcome. The way it handles transitions from effect to original has problems, especially with transparency, but either it'll get fixed, or there'll be a "Use Classic Healing Brush" checkbook in a future version.

I panicked for a second before I figured how to reinstall 2014, but even with the glitchy behavior, I've spent most of my time in 2015 this week. As for Adobe not testing it - now that I've had a chance to cool down, I can see that there's just no way for a finite QA crew to test it the way millions of us use it 10 hours a day every day, especially if you're an advanced user and "ordering off the menu" regularly. This has happened with every "new! improved!" release I've used since Photoshop 5.5, and I hate them for 48 hours, then I settle into the new stuff I won't be able to live without by week's end.

The healing brush is now a bad clone stamp. It used to be was my to go tool for skin retouching and now I can't even use it. I'm so disappointed with this update. I hope they fix the problem cause I don't even know how to go back to CC 2014.
