The touch-up feature seems a few versions old. It would be nice to have the capabilities of Photoshop CS6 for filling in a blank area.

In the online version of photoshop, it terms the tool "touch up" which was the old equivalent of a copy/paste brush. This is the tool where, if you want to fill in an erased area (or a non-existent area, in the case of a photo merge), it would do an exact copy of the corresponding brush. You first select the "source" area of the picture, and then you hold the left mouse button down in the "destination" area of the document, where it makes an exact copy of the image from the "source" area.

This is *very* old-school for Adobe Photoshop.

The CS5 and CS6 versions of Photoshop have a much more professional way of filling in a blank area by doing an examination of the picture and filling it in with textures similar to the surrounding terrain. For example, if you have a field filled with grass, but there's a piece of litter in the picture, you can erase the litter and tell Photoshop to fill in the area. Then Photoshop would see the grass surrounding the empty space and fill in the space with grass.

There is no "online version of Photoshop".

Are you possibly using Photoshop.com, Photoshop Express, Photoshop Touch, or Photoshop Elements?

Yes, Photoshop.com, which I had tagged for this message.

It's better if you spell out which application you're using. Most of the time people don't use the tags correctly, so we can't rely on them.
