The Clone Stamp Tool

Introducing the Clone Stamp Tool

Similar in so many ways to the previous three cloning & healing tools (the Spot Healing Brush Tool, the Healing Brush Tool and the Patch Tool)… the Clone Stamp Tool is the only one that clones pixel for pixel.  So when you sample an area to clone, it copies it exactly.

The other three tools all tend to add an element of ‘merging’ between the area being cloned and the destination they’re being cloned to.  This results in a much more natural-looking outcome.

This gives the Clone Stamp Tool certain advantages over the other tools, but also some genuine big disadvantages.

Watch this video to discover how the Clone Stamp Tool can be useful to your editing.
