How to Use Patch Tool in Photoshop?

Now, let’s learn how to use Patch tool.

Step 1: Duplicate the Background Layer

First of all, you don’t want your work to be destructive. You always want to work non-destructively so that you can go back to original image whenever you have made any mistake.

To do so, we need to duplicate the background layer. Press Cmd+J/Ctrl+J to duplicate your background layer.


Note – Unlike Healing Brush, Patch tool doesn’t work in transparent layers. It is yet to have “Choose Layers” functionality.

Step 2: Encircle the Flaw

Now encircle the area you want to remove.


Step 3: Move the Selection

Now, gently move the selection to the area that you want to fill the flaw.
