callmegina Posted September 16, 2009 Share Posted September 16, 2009 I have a scattered spray of colored pixels that I want to cover my entire 2048 x 2048 pixel image (the colored pixels represent clumps of grass on a map). I started by painting about 12 pixels in shades of the grass colors I wanted, at a transparency setting of 140, then I started using larger and larger clone stamps to expand my spray in an even, random-looking way, on a layer over the underlying terrain image. But...my original colors of pixels seem to change as I stamp them! I can't seem to reproduce my original area (arrangement of pixels, original colors) with the stamp. For example: I press CTRL+LMB to pick up the area, then LMB in the new area to paste the clone. But if I simply click the LMB, the original colors are greatly faded. Then if I drag the LMB, the colors darken (but too much). How do I simply stamp a cloned area exactly as it originally appeared? Are there settings to the clone stamp tool that force it to stamp "as is," and don't require dragging? Is the clone stamp even the best way to apply my colored pixels across the map? Is there a better technique I'm missing? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
