  • Cloning tool

    Is there a way when using the cloning tool to make the "alt mouse click" thingy stay put and not move while you clone? Hope you understand what I'm trying to say. ie -- I need the area I'm trying to clone to be the same repeat over and over of a selected part of a picture chosen by my "alt mouse click".

    With the clone tool selected look on the tool bar and unselect "Aligned" this makes your sampled area stay in the same place all the time,

      Clear the 'Aligned' check mark at the top of the work area.

        also, consider the patch tool

            I'm having the strangest issue with my patch tool and I am wondering if someone can help me.
