Join Justin Seeley for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the Healing tool, part of GIMP Essential Training (2012).
Another option for fixing image flaws is going to be to use something called the Healing Tool,…and inside of GIMP, the Healing Tool is actually a cousin to the Clone Stamp Tool,…in that it does pretty much the same thing, but GIMP says that it is much better for fixing…smaller areas of information.…Where the Clone Tool can be used to fix things like these big corners that are missing, the…Healing Tool is great for the small bits of grain, and small rips and tears that you see…throughout the image.…And so what we want to do is use the Healing Tool.…We can get that by clicking on it, or pressing the letter H on our keyboard. And we want to…work with a fairly small sized brush.…
You want to shrink the brush size down.…You can do that with the left or right bracket keys on your keyboard to increase or decrease the brush.…And I am going to zoom in on my photo, and I'm also going to pan around to find some…of these little areas that need help, so like this area here, this little rip here, all…these little dust speckles; things like that.…
