    On the properties bar of the clone tool you should see a check box marked align, click this and your cloning should automatically align.

      The program has to know what you want to clone. You may not want to clone to the same place on the new document.

      I think you would probably do better with copying and pasting the other image into the original and using a layer mask. If you press 'alt' ('option'on MAC) and click the layer mask icon you will get a mask which reveals all of the previous layers. You can then use white on the mask to reveal as much or as little of the second image as you want. By using a soft brush you can get a very good blend between the images.

      You can repeat this with as many layers/copies as you want to and all layers/masks will still be editable.

        Never quite understood layers and how to use them

        I've used Photoshop for years -now version CS2 and lately Photoshop Elements v.6_Somehow I've never really grasped the basics of Layers.

        Another color-to-b/w conversion technique
        by Doug Nelson
        Coming from the world of traditional film b/w photography, I know that a common practice to alter tonality of a scene is to use colored filters. It struck me that the RGB model is ideal for just that same thing, so I played around and came up with a technique to emulate this.

        Take your...

        New Adjustment Layers, no Default Mask?
        by artofretouching
        Normally, when you create a new Adjustment Layer, it will link (attach) a blank white mask. I have never seen this before yesterday, but I have a student who's new iMac/CS6 install is creating the Adjustment Layers, but no Masks.

        He can click the Mask Icon, and get a mask, but nothing...
