Clone brush

Recommended Posts


I just discovered paint.net and I had 2 questions I'm hoping someone could help me with.

1. Cone Brush - If I have 2 pictures side by side, how can I use the clone brush to provided a starting point for the picture on the left and have the target (end result) be painted in the picture on the right ? Of course , cloning from within a single image is trivial but haven't found a way to clone between 2 images. This is a key feature I like in Photoshop and Elements (e.g. can clone from one pic to another).

2. Is there a way to 'duplicate' an image I'm working on ? In photoshop and elements, there's a 'Duplicate' item which sits off the menu where it'll create a newly (duplicated) image,

You can't Clone Stamp from one file to another.

Import the layer you want to clone from into the file that you want to clone to.

Save and name the file you are working on (but don't close it).

Then open the file as a second instance of itself, and save with a different name.

Very cool. Thanks for the quick response.

One last question if you have a second.

Regarding your response to #1. Once I start cloning, is there a way to set the opacity of the clone brush ? I've looked but can't find where it might be located. I see where I can change the opacity of a layer, but not the brush itself.
