Click on the reset option in the healing brush panel.
The reset on the healing tool causes all the healing effects to disappear (and this is the little reset button, not the big one at the bottom).
Based on the question that you asked, that is what I thought you wanted to do. Please explain.
After using the healing tool, and making your adjustments, there is a little circle showing the where you applied the healing.
1. If you just want to hide the little circles but leave the corrections you made, simply click the Healing tool (the circle with the right facing arrow in the tools) again and all the circles disappear.
2. If you want to remove the adjustment you made, click the circle once. It changes from a gray circle to one with a black center circle.
Then simply press the delete key on your keyboard and that circle and the one on the area it healed from both disappear.
3. You can make multiple healing corrections and only remove specific ones by clicking the circle and then pressing the delete key on your keyboard. That way you only remove the corrections. If you click on each circle and click the Delete key each time, you will individually remove each correction, one at a time.
4. If you want to clear all of the healing circles at once and clear all your corrections to start completely over, then click the word Reset at the bottom of that healing Brush panel.
5. And if you want to check the before and after views of the healing corrections you just made, you can press the little "switch" on the right at the bottom of the healing brush panel. It looks like a vertical rectangle, with the top in white and the bottom half in black. When you click on it, the top becomes black and the bottom becomes white, as though you had turned off a wall light switch. Doing so does not remove the healing corrections you made, it simply lets you view the image without the corrections. You can then turn the corrections back on by clicking the "switch" again, making the top of the little rectangle white again.
Hope that helps.
Guys, thanks for sharing your expertise. Let me try to clarify the problem:
-Let's say I go in to heal numerous flaws in a portrait. I go in and make corrections, but the problem is, I'm left with a lot of circles that create two big problems:
-They clutter the picture when I'm trying to do other heals--it becomes difficult to see through them. I could hit "done," but would have to keep toggling between the most recent version of the work and the work copy that I'm trying to heal.
-The circles remaining in the work copy interfere with other heals that I wish to make. It creates a tangle of conflicting circles/healing spots.
-At a certain point in a series of heals, the healing tool stops working and there is no more plus sign in the spot I wish to heal--the function sort of drops out and even stops making corrections.
So, to summarize:
I want to do a heal, finish it, and make the circle in that area go away so I can work with a clean image uncluttered with tangles of circles.
I don't know if this will help you, but pressing H will toggle hide/show of the circles.
Ahhhh! Try pressing the H key on your keyboard after making some heals!
Use the H key to toggle the circles on and off and try zooming in to areas that slightly overlap so you heal more effectively.
Just use SELECTED in the tool overlay and only the circles for the heal you are working on will show. This will not solve you problem of a "tangle of conflicting circles/healing spots". If the photo requires this complex use of the brush maybe it is time to use Photoshop or modify your healing technique. Could you provide a screen clip of this TANGLE before and after.
