Applications

Typical uses for Clone Stamp are covering an unsightly crack in a wall behind you or add more trees to make a rural scene. The tool is especially effective when dealing with areas of multiple colors or textures. It is also advisable to use Clone Stamp when the point of reference is similar to the area you wish to cover up, or else the clones pixels will not blend naturally. To make different textures or colors merge smoothly, you can use soft strokes and reduce the brush strength. Feel free to experiment!
