    I am using PS CS2 and here is one little tiny thing for which I can't seem
    to find an answer. The Spot Healing Brush Tool (the one that does not
    require picking a spot to clone from) lists three main choices for
    configuring the brush. The options are: Diameter, Hardness and Spacing.
    The first two are, of course, obvious but what does Spacing do? I have
    searched Adobe help relative to this tool without success.
    I use this tool a lot (usually with spacing set somewhere in the 15 to 25
    range) but it bugs me that I really don't know what I am controlling with
    this parameter.

    Imagine drawing a line with a pencil. If the spacing were set wide you would
    see a line of dashes. The smaller the spacing the more like a line it would

    Thanks! That is a very clear explanation.
