    Default How do use the Patch tool?

    Ok, I have never used a patch tool, always just try and clone stuff out. I heard that this is another way to get rid of the edges from the plexiglas. Just wondering if anyone has used this tool before.

    I've used it, but I usually don't get the results that I am going for with it. But then again, I've never tried it on plexiglass, so IDK. Maybe this video will help. http://www.photoshoproadmap.com/Phot...atch/116897854

    OMGosh the Patch Tool is my best friend in PS, I use it ALL the time! Mostly with splotchy skin or under-eye issues, because you can fade it so it looks natural (hit command-shift-f and it brings up the opacity prompt).

    I use it a lot to get rid of smudges or inadvertent creases on the base of my seamless paper too, b/c sometimes the clone tool is messy. Just select the area, drag it to a nice area, adjust the opacity, and voila! You'd never know the difference!

    Example (wish I had the SOOC on Flickr!)--in this shot, the seamless ended a bit after the bottom of the stool. Also, the seamless was on carpet so it was horribly crinkly underneath. DH didn't think I could fix it. YAY for the patch tool!!!

    Ooh Meagan that's so cool. I must try. If I have any other question, I'll post and ask here.

    i've only used it a couple times but i think if you need to edit a large amount of space in the same area then it is best to use that tool i need to learn how to use it properly.
