As I have used the clone tool in (a very old) Corel PhotoPaint :roll: , I know how I expect it to work, but I could not immediately figure out how this one does. Is there a way to set "source point" and "target point"? As I saw that the help menu is not available, maybe someone can point me in the right direction.

There should be some help text at the bottom of the window, in the status bar. On mine it says,

[?] Clone Stamp: Hold Ctrl and left click to select an origin. Afterwards, left click and draw to copy

The 'origin' is the source point. The target point is wherever the mouse is.

Thanks, Rick,

This is very useful software. I just edited a photo from my 50th HS reunion where I had a closeup after an outdoor event and my face was all shiny. I just used the color select, paint and gausian blur to smooth things out and take the shine off, add a little lip color and mascara etc. I'll try the clone soon.
