Clone Tool Question- Clone color only?

Can the clone stamp tool only clone color rather than detail/pattern of the source area?

Sure. Select the clone tool, then set it's mode (on the options bar, next to Opacity and Flow) to Color.

You can even do it without the split, and you can do it on another layer on top of the split. Just set the layer blending mode to color, and stamp set to normal, sampling current and bellow.

I use this technique countless times, it's a real lifesaver.
