1. What is the Healing Brush tool? 

With a wrinkled shirt in Photoshop, you have many ways to remove wrinkles. But the most commonly used tool is the Healing Brush tool. This is a very useful concealer tool in Adobe Photoshop.

Healing Brush works by copying an area on the image and then pasting it over the selection you want. This tool will help automatically balance the color of the copied area with the effective selection area, making the image more natural and consistent. That's why many people choose to remove wrinkles from clothes in Photoshop using the Healing Brush. 

The Healing Brush Tool has many different brushes, but today we will only use the Spot Healing Brush Tool to remove wrinkles on clothes. This tool will automatically sample neighboring image areas and then automatically fill in defects as naturally as possible.

 

2. Steps to remove wrinkles from clothes in Photoshop 

You can "iron" wrinkles on your shirt in Photoshop with just the following basic steps: 

Step 1: First, open the image containing the shirt you need remove wrinkles. To upload a photo, on the menu bar, select File => Open => select the appropriate photo => OK. 

Or use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+O and select the appropriate image. 

Here I use a photo of a white T-shirt with many wrinkles as shown below.

Step 2: To remove wrinkles from clothes in Photoshop, we will use the Spot Healing Brush Tool of Healing Brush. On the toolbar, select Spot Healing Brush Tool or press J key.

Step 3: Once you have selected the Spot Healing Brush tool, go to the top settings bar and select Painting Mode. By default it will be in Normal mode, but there are a number of options for you to choose from such as Replace, Multiply, Screen, Darken, Lighten, Color and Luminosity. 

For example, if there is a wrinkle that is darker than the surrounding fabric color, you will have to select Lighten mode, to lighten it. 

Feel free to explore and experiment with modes to get the effect you want. 

For this tutorial, I started with Screen mode to achieve a clean ironing effect.

Step 4: Next, you need to set the Healing Type from the top settings bar. Here, you can also test three different options: Content-Aware, Create Texture, and Proximity Match. Each option gives different results. 

Choosing Type: Content-Aware is a good choice when you want to duplicate the content and texture of the sample area.

Step 5: After selecting Paint Mode and Healing Type, you can move on to adjusting brush features such as Hardness and Size, under the brush icon from the options bar. 

Depending on the size of the area you want to fix, it's always helpful to change the size of the brush. For example, I started with Brush Size set to 20 px, Hardness at 70% and Spacing at 25% to cover the main wrinkles.
