Adobe has issued an update for Photoshop CC 2015 with a number of bug fixes. Notably, an issue with the healing brush tool has been addressed, as users reported that the tool was creating unwanted artifacts in images. Adobe has also allowed use of the previous, non-real-time healing brush tool in response to complaints that the new tool is not as effective. Other bug fixes relate to stability and performance; see a full list below.
