Alright. So, what else might you do with this still? We got still more Sims to heals do you not? So, I am going to press the “J” to get back to the healing brush. Now, the other blend modes can come in handy for darkening the image while you paint and so on. You might want to try them out if you like. But you will notice up here in the “Options” bar, something is missing.
Notice that we are missing any form whatsoever of an opacity value. We do not have opacity or exposure or flow or any of those controls that we have seen in the past. But it turns out, we do have a way to get around that. They do not appear up here in the “Options” bar but let me show you a special trick. I am going to come down here lower inside the image because we got this stuff that I want to heal and I am not very happy with this patch, so we will go ahead and fix that.
I am going to increase the size of my brush a couple of jots here. I am going to option click or Alt click again in this neutral area and I am going to drag down along here. Now, that looks pretty good. I am going to zoom in some more, so that we can see it close up here. It looks pretty good but it does not look great. So, let us say, you like the brush stroke you applied but you do not love it. So in other words, you do not want to completely undo it but you do not want to keep it completely either.
Well, Gosh! No problem, you can fade it by going up to the “Edit” menu and choosing this “Remember This” option, the “Fade” command and now, it says, “Fade Healing Brush”. And sure enough, just like that. Check it out. We have an opacity value associated with the healing brush and I can fade that healing brush back a little bit, so that it produces a better match for us.
Now, the thing about this solution--it is really good one, it is nice that it exists, however, you probably not going to want to use it on a super regular basis. In other words, you are not going to be the one who paint your brushstroke, then choose fade then paint another brushstroke then choose fade because the “Fade” command only affects the very last brushstroke you apply. So, just remember that, you only have on chance to fade right after you paint the brushstroke.
Okay, and from then on, when your tool returns to being an “Opaque” tool, I am going to make my tool a little bit smaller here and paint along this side and you can always heal multiple times over a single area to try to see if that is going to do the trick for you. Just keep trying to heal over it and see if that helps.
But avoid healing too much. Avoid scrubbing over the area multiple times because if you do scrub over it too often, then you may create something that is an obvious patch. You just have to watch that and you will learn time. A little bit experience goes a long way with this tool.
