  • PS clone tool making independent decisions

    has anyone else had the experience of using the clone tool w/ aligned deselected and a few strokes down the road, behold, aligned is selected, tho i didn't do it. i figure i must be doing something to make that happen but don't know just what. using the tablet, in case that is significant.

    Hello Kathleen,

    Just me again . Yeah, I've had that happen to me. I hope someone can give us some insight on it.

      I haven't noticed that one but I have a problem where my tool cursors get mixed up alot. Like I go to sample something and I get a crop icon or maybe a pait bucket. It will do the task for the tool I've selected but just with another tools icon. It's totally random and sometimes I really need the right icon cursor to see where I am pinpointing as in a selection or sample or something. I have Adobe baffeled on this one.

      Don't you just love these little quirks no one can figure out? Sorry I can't help you though but I can identify with you.

      I really think Photoshop has gotten so big now that it is a living breating entity with a mind of it's own.

        no one knows where it came from. it has a mind of its own. its powerful. its photoshop.
        i guess somebody does probabally know where it came from. prob. somebody real rich, too.

          I havenot had any of those problems--lately that is. When I boosted the RAM and then re installed PS 6 and the updates the problems went away. Tom

            For windows users, have you installed the PS6.0.1 patch?

                  I found that even using PS 4 with less than 256 of Ram I had frequent lock ups and some very strange things occuring. Boosting the ram and reinstalling the program cleared this up. I suspect that the less RAM you have the more prone to "glitches" PS is. At the rock bottom price of Ram now, slipping in one or two 256mb chips might save a lot of future headaches. Tom

                      This is about the only other thing I can think of:
                      When using my Wacom, my ham-hands would frequently trigger the little clicky thing on the side accidentally, causing all sorts of mischief. So I disabled it.

                      Or maybe, when you hit the Alt-key to reposition (and here's hoping you do that almost every tap)(no strokes) perhaps you inadvertently hit some other combination?

                      Just guesses.

                        Kathleen, Just out of curiosity, have you tried uninstalling and re-installing PS? Also I think Doug mentioned something about deleting the "preferences" file upon launching PS to eliminate the possibility of a corrupted file therein. Just wondering. Tom

                            Doug,

                            I think you might have something there. I've caught myself hitting keys unintentionally before, and I probably have done it many times, but not caught myself doing it.

                            Tom,

                            I did delete the preferences file, but it might be that I'll have to reinstall Photoshop.

                            Anybody,

                            Kathleen said she had over 800 megs of RAM. Why is it that Mac users seem to have a lot more RAM than PC users? Just wondering.

                              Mend Tool - Patron Info button error.
                              by jimlay
                              I have just received and installed the Mend Tool. I gather that the installation was a success because the Mend options now appear in the Effects pallette.

                              When I go into the Effects pallette and double-click Patron Info, nothing happens. I am under the impression that a new image should...

                              Recompose Tool for PS?
                              by ylwdog
                              Elements has the Recompose tool- but I cannot find a comparable tool/feature in Photoshop. I have version 6.0

                              Thanks,

                              pb with the cloning tool
                              by sylvia1065
                              Hi,
                              I'm having trouble with the cloning tool (PS CS2). Despite the fact that I'm on the correct layer and all my settings are normal, very often, it just won't work or will only if I clone fairly far from the source. I would appreciate any help on this matter.
                              Thanks,
                              Sylvia

                              by Gerald McClaren
                              I had used the Patch Tool on 9-6 while restoring a photo. I went back the next day and when I click on the Patch Tool again my cursor was a cross-hair. I was told that I needed to delete my preferences file. I held down Alt + Ctrl + Shift while starting Photoshop. A window came up that stated: Delete...
