The answer may surprise you – it’s actually hidden away in the toolbox!

To access it, simply click and hold on the Spot Healing Brush Tool until a flyout menu appears. Then, select the Patch Tool from the menu.

PRO TIP: The Patch Tool in Photoshop can be found under the ‘Edit’ menu, which is located in the top-left corner of the screen. It can also be accessed by pressing the ‘P’ key on your keyboard. The Patch Tool is used to repair damaged or missing pixels in an image. When using the Patch Tool, it is important to be careful not to accidentally delete or move any surrounding pixels.

Now that you know where to find the Patch Tool, let’s take a look at how it works. Essentially, the Patch Tool allows you to “patch” up an area of an image by cloning pixels from another area. This is especially useful for repairing damaged or scratched photos.

First, select the area that you want to repair. Then, click and drag to select the area that you want to clone pixels from. Finally, release the mouse button and Photoshop will automatically blend the two areas together.

The Patch Tool is a powerful tool that can be used to repair all sorts of damage to photos. So next time your photo is looking less than perfect, don’t hesitate to give the Patch Tool a try!
