The Annoying Little Clone Stamp Trail.........

Recommended Posts

Whenever I use the Clone Stamp tool, I notice that there's a secondary trailing clone stamp that appears after the target cloning. This tends to ruin the process, as it picks up on whatever it's cloning when I stamp it to the new location. :x

How can I get rid of it?

That's how clone stamp works - you pick a point from which to start cloning, and then you start copying to a new location. Once the 2 positions have been set, they move together. It sounds like what you want is to copy only 1 part of the image, in which case copy + paste is more what you're looking for.

Yeah...that's literally the point of clone stamp, and it's the way it works in every program that has it.


The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.

Just clone between two separate layers. Problem solved.

It's a pain because you have to switch layers every time you redo your Ctrl+Click anchor setting, but it works.
