I've noticed that the spot healing brush in CS5 doesn't seem to work that well with the images from my D7000. It seems to leave an after-image of what's been removed, to the point where I have to use the clone tool to remove something completely. Has anyone else found this?
Yes, but it's a different behaviour of the same function, depending on the camera. It's as though there's something about the D7000's image file that causes a glitch. I'll try and post an example of what I mean tomorrow.
I suppose anything is possible, but once an image is rendered within Photoshop it's an array of pixels, each with RGB values, so that it's hard to imagine why a Photoshop function would operate differently for different camera models. Perhaps the resolution, sharpening, saturation, or whatever, for images from the D7000 is causing a difference.
I'm trying to remain polite, but it makes no sense that different camera brands alone would have an effect upon photoshop tool operation.

I was thinking that a possibility would lie in the recent update to ACR, which had to be changed to include images from the D7000 (among others).
You will need to create the same image with another camera for a good test to tell that the specific camera is the difference.
I have been using the new content aware version the last several months and the old versions in prior versions, and I can say that not all areas of all images work well with the spot healing brush. I have never noticed a camera specific issue. It sounds unlikely. But post images with two cameras so that we can see the difference.
I used spot healing on a bunch of d90 pictures, at late as ones taken in the fall and have been using it on some taken with my d7000 since I got it in late October, I don't notice any difference in the application of it.
Spot healing is great but it doesn't always work. Without images it is nearly impossible to say much. I don't think this is an issue with ACR but rather the application of spot healing.
