Next, I switch to the Spot Healing Brush tool (press J), and click once directly on spots and other distracting things on the ground around the car in my image. I want the racetrack to look clean and clear. If you look closely at the photo in Figure 7, you’ll see lots of spots and specks in the foreground and to the left of the car, by the back tire. I’ve cleaned those up in Figure 8. Of course, I could have removed the white line by the back tire as well. If you’re doing something comparable, switch back to the Clone Stamp tool and clone over it.
You might wonder why I didn’t get rid of those spots by using the Remove Spots tool in Lightroom. I could have removed them in Lightroom, but Photoshop’s Spot Healing Brush is much faster and easier to use, and since I was coming over to Photoshop anyway, it saved time and trouble to do it here.
