Lesson Info

Replace a Repeating Pattern

whenever you use the spot healing brush, which is the tool that I just used. If you have any regularly repeating content, it's usually going to be a man made thing. It's going to be something like tile work. You're gonna find that the spot healing brush usually doesn't do a great job. So here, if I want to get rid of the sign that is found here, I can come in here and attempt to use the spot healing brush when you use the spot healing brush or any tool that has the word healing in its name, usually want to paint across the entirety of what you want to retouch out. The reason why you need to go across the entire thing is because it's similar to the content aware fill feature. And that is it's gonna look all the way around the edge of where I've painted right exactly on that edge in. That's where it's gonna pick up the color and brightness to match. And so if I only painted halfway across the thing that I want to get rid of, it assumes it should blend in in match the color of that thing.

I'm trying to get rid of and so it won't look right. So I paint over the whole thing, and I doubt it will do a good job. And so when it comes to man made stuff that has regularly repeating patterns, you'll usually have to do a lot manually. Well, I want to show you how you can have more control when you're copying. So I'm gonna come in here and use the clone stamp tool. The clone stamp tool just does straightforward copying and putting it somewhere else. And what I'm going to do is come up here to where a grout line is. I'm going to option click to indicate that's where I'd like to copy. And then I'm gonna guesstimate exactly where it should go down here. If I compare the edge of the ground line here to what is there, you notice that the one on the right is higher. So here I see a grout line, I'm gonna go bit higher, and I'm gonna guesstimate it to be right about here. That it should end up. I'm gonna click there, and I start to put in my grout line Now. I wasn't careful with how far left to right. I should be. So when I get to hear, I doubt this grout lines gonna line up. If it is, it's just by chance and it looks like it's not too bad. But I'm just trying to break this up. Input the content that I think would be vast in there. Now, if I come up here, you notice how this blue doesn't match up by Zoom up here. Do you see how it's too far to the right? We'll watch this if I end up having my mouse there were Haven't clicked yet, but I'm getting a preview inside of my brush. And by the way, to get that preview where it stays fixed like that after you applied things, you need to have a check box turned on up here at the top. I always have this check box called a Lined turned on. If that wasn't turned on, then when you move around and here we would see the original area I copied from and it would be moving with my brush. It wouldn't be fixed within that circle. Now watch what happens inside of that circle when I use a magical little keyboard shortcut. Do you see how it just was able to move it left or right? And I'm not using my mouse to do it. I'm using my keyboard, and I could move it up and down as well. Um, so I could come in here and decide exactly where I need to be there, using special keyboard shortcuts. While you're interested in knowing what those shortcuts might be, Let me show him to you. So let's just say I needed to use the healing brush. I'll switch over to the healing brush because I want things to blend in with its surroundings. And any time I needed to match their surroundings, I need to use the healing brush. I'm gonna come up here to this area. I'm gonna option click, and then I'm going to come down here to where I need to apply it. And let's just say, when I clicked, I was off a little bit. There was off. Well, I need to turn on a check box at the top of my screen for all my retouching tools, and it's called aligned. If a line does not turned on, then you're going to see the original area you told it to copy from, and it's going to be moving around with your brush when you turn the lined on. If you've ever applied your adjustment anywhere, then this will stay aligned with it. And I had clicked down here, so it waas so I'm gonna come up here and see the grout line. Doesn't completely lineup. I think it needs to be moved to the left a little bit. So I'm going to use a special keyboard truck out and move it over a bit. I'll come down here and see if it aligns with this and I'm like, now it's a little too high compared to what was in there. So I'm gonna move it down. See, now I have it pretty closely aligned, and I'll then come up here and apply it. Although I shouldn't go that high because it hit this Ah, material above. I think I'm still gonna hit that material. But so let's look at what the keyboard shortcuts are that Allow me to move something as a copy it after I've already applied it. So I'm gonna option click here. I'll come down here to apply it, and I'm going to just be a little bit off. Just Just just say that happened by chance. Now, in order to move that, I'm gonna hold down the following keys shift an option on a Macintosh that would be shift in Ault in windows with those two keys held down. I'll just keep him held down. Then I use the arrow keys on my keyboard and then I can narrow this down and left up until it matches up with the surrounding contents. And I think it is now. But that was shifting option and then using your arrow keys There are other things Weaken Dio win where in here were not limited to simply moving. We can also scale in rotate. So let me show you the keyboard shortcuts for scaling and for rotating. If you'd like to scale, you still hold down shift an option for all these things you hold down shift in option Then I'm going to use this square looking bracket keys. It's right above the return key on my keyboard. Looks like half squares that are in there. So shift option and then right bracket and watch what happens on my screen here. Do you see it getting larger or I'm going to the left bracket and you'll see it getting smaller. And that could be useful. If there is a wall that's at an angle, where part of it is further away from the camera than another, oftentimes you'll need to scale. The last thing we can do is rotate into rotate again, you hold down shift an option that shift in all time. Windows in this time used the greater than in less than symbols. That means the ones that look like Sideways Letter V's and that will allow me to rotate this clockwise with one of them or counterclockwise with the other in. Therefore, it becomes much more versatile when retouching.

I am an avid reader of photoshop books, and an avid watcher of photoshop tutorials. I have attended (internet) several hundred of presentations. In the course of this endeavor, I have found my own favorite photoshop websites and instructors. Creative Live is probably the bargain out there as well as among the top three internet course sites. I have to say with great enthusiasm that the best Photoshop instructor is Ben Willmore. There are many great ones, but truly, he is the best I have come across, and, as indicated above, I have watched literally 100s of tutorials on Photoshop. I have seen all of Ben's courses, I think, and among them, this one is the best by far, and that is saying a lot, because that makes this course the best course on Photoshop to be found anywhere. I am going back and watching it twice. Not only is it comprehensive, but Ben is so familiar with his subject that he is able to explain it like no other. This is crème de la crème of Photoshop classes. I have been wanting to write this review for some time because I have been so thoroughly impressed with everything about this class!

Highly recommended if you want to take your Photoshop skills to the next level. Ben Willmore is clear, concise, and professional. He also has a good speaking voice that is not distracting but also keeps you engaged. Lastly, I would recommend that as you become more advanced, increasing the speed of the video (one of the options given on the menu)...especially if you've gone through the course once before and maybe want to watch it again. The double speed is very efficient as you become more advanced in Photoshop. Thanks for the help Ben!

Wow. I cannot communicate the value of this course!! The true value in this course is how the instructor identifies workflows you'll need before you'll ever realize it, repeats important information without it becoming annoying, and explains the "why" behind the techniques so well that even if you forget the exact method, you can figure it out via the principles learned. Excellent value, excellent material, excellent instructor!!!
