Hello, I have Photoshop Elements 2018.  Most of the time when I use the clone or healing brush tools, it leaves circles or leaves a smudging look on the photo.  Can someone tell me why and what I am doing wrong?

On the clone tool's option bar, check "aligned,", opacity=100%, Mode:Normal

I keep trying different ways with both tools and nothing looks right.  I have had this issue many times before as well.  If you look at the boy in the back on the right.  You can see where I keep trying to fix the forehead.

I did not encounter a problem with the clone stamp tool, using a small cursor.

I fixed the boy's forehead and touched up the forehead of the lad in front as well.

Thank you very much 🙂

Although, I can see a definitive difference between the right side and the left side where the cursor tool was used on the boy in the back.  It looks blurred and smudgy.  I thought the tools helped to make it look "normal".  That is the look I am getting when I try to fix it.  The boy in front looks really nice.
