I am having a lot of problems with the spot healing brush tool. I am getting asked to use the alt key to pick a spot. It should not be doing that. It acts as if I were using the clone stamp tool, which I do not want to use now. Can anyone help me with this? My software is Photoshop CC and is up to date.
Click and hold on the healing brish on the Toolbar. You have the Healing brush selected, and you want the 'Spot healing brush'
I was also having this problem. Thank you Trevor for a quick and easy solution.
