Healing and Cloning

Use dedicated heal and clone brushes to help retouch photos and remove unwanted objects and artefacts.

I own a Canon 80D DSLR and I am wondering if this application has a raw file editor for it.

To whom it may concern .. I am using the older version of light room 6.12 .. It seems to be down grading on me …I am not a pro with light room but know my images could surpass the look of what they are now .. I am looking for a software that will work similar to light room but does a better job … Will your capture one be easy enough to use and user friendly and still do the job for portrait editing and landscapes photography .. There are a lot of editing soft ware out there but yours has caught my eye … and what do i need to know to make this work for me for editing … Looking for ward to hearing from you !! Thank you , Yours sincerely Sonja ..

My delete /backspace is not deleting my source points when healing and cloning. Is there something in my settings I need to change?

David Grover

Hi Robert,

It should be default behaviour. Make a support case at so we can look into it.

I’m running into the same issue as Robert. Windows 10 laptop, and can’t delete source points. Backspace does nothing. I tried hitting delete, and it deleted the entire image from the library.
