If you have a basically good image that needs a few corrections, you can use Photoshop’s healing features, newly improved in CS6. The Healing Brush tool will cover small flaws and blend them with the surrounding area. If you want to duplicate a selected area, use the Clone Stamp tool. To remove larger or more complex areas, choose the Patch tool set to Content Aware mode, select and drag the area to remove, and Photoshop will replace it with new content that fits in seamlessly. The Content Aware Move tool works in a similar way, but it moves the selected area to a new part of the image, and blends it in with the new surroundings.
