Quick Tip For Resizing Lightroom’s Spot Removal (Healing Brush) Brush

This a quickie, but a really handy one because it lets you drag out the brush to the exact size you want (I usually make the brush just a little larger than the spot, spec or object I want to remove). Here’s how you do it:

You hold the Option-Command keys (PC: Alt-Ctrl) then click and drag out the brush right over the spot or spec you want to remove. See the video below.

NOTE: No Audio

Hope you found that helpful. 🙂

Have a good one!

    Great tip, thanks Scott. BTW, do Mac mice not have scroll wheels? In LrC under Windows I have always used the scroll wheel to adjust brush size. Very intuitive, and no bracket or other extra keys needed. It has always baffled me why Adobe doesn’t support the same mouse functionality in Ps.

    Have you ever considered trying to pull from the center of the spot? That way your clone stamps would be smaller and more effective.
