Repair Versus Healing

Post by sandconp »

I would like to understand the difference between Healing and Repair for my stars?

I have used both and they seem to do the same thing.

Hi,

Repair and Heal do very different things - are you sure you really tried both?

Heal replaces pixels that are set in your mask by "neutral" pixels. Should you have a star mask set, then this would make the stars vanish.

Repair, on the other hand, attempts to repair any stars you have set in a star mask. That is it makes them round again if they are misshapen. It does not remove them completely like the Heal module does.

Please see the documentation for both modules (heal and repair) for screenshots and operation details.
