CM3 Cloning Problem

G'day, my problem is that in using CM3 photoshop and working on a Image that requires a lot of cloninig it is OK for a while and then after selecting Alt and Enter when moving over area to be cloned nothing happens. Tried making brush and paint selection, same, nothing!
Any ideas?
thanks for your consideration
Graham

Well make sure that there is not an active selection. Next with the stamp tool selected just use the alt key to select the source and brush on the area that you want the clone to go to. You do not need to use the enter key.

Re: CM3 Cloning Problem

G'day Philbach. have done as you suggested and on Previous and since your reply. Clone still wont work but when I open this in Paint Shop Pro. No Probs in cloning and Painting. In PS7 & CM3 think I have upset settings of some kind. The reason for not working . Note in both PS7 & CM3 clone inoperative.
That's the way the Cookie crumbles at present.
Kind Regards
Graham

Re: CM3 Cloning Problem

Graham,
It sounds like you are working in Photoshop CS3 (not CM3).
A few suggestions:
- you could try resetting your preferences, by holding Ctrl-Alt-Shft during the application startup. You'll be prompted to reset them.
- it could be a memory issue, since you say it's Ok for a while, then nothing.
  • How much RAM do you have ?
  • The PS scratch disk could be running out of room. Check it's location under preferences and ensure that drive has plenty of free space.
