Hi janeybabes,

Although you said you had the brush set to Content-Aware mode (mode available to the Spot Healing brush only), I am thinking you may have the Brush tool activated instead. That was the only way I could replicate what you did -- by using the Brush tool. (See my screen shot of the Spot Healing brush and the Healing brush.)

OK then try the Reset tools in the upper left ( I Think )

Your healing Brushes will have no color in them other than the color that's sampled. If that don't work Hang in there a MAC person will be along shortly, they are smarter than me anyway.

Read Sepiana's post above. You don't use a regular brush, and the foreground/background never comes into the formula. Using the spot healing brush with Content Aware mode selected at the top of the main edit panel automatically uses the colors and textures adjacent to the area you are repairing. I used a brush size of 20 pixels for the healing brush. It's one of the neatest features in Elements 9 and 10.

Note where the arrows are pointing in this screenshot.

janeybabes,

I didn't see this post of yours until after I had posted my reply wondering if you were by any chance using the Brush tool.

I agree with Hank. Let's try to reset the Spot Healing brush -- in the left end of the Options bar click on the down arrow and select Reset Tool.

Let us know what happens!
