How To Clone Image

When your images contain localized flaws or blemishes, you can use the image clone tool to make minor enhancements and touch-ups. The clone tool allows you to sample a non-flawed portion of an image and copy it to the flawed portion you wish to correct. It takes a little practice, but keep reading to learn how to clone images using PaintShop Pro.

1. Install PaintShop Pro

To install PaintShop Pro photo editing software on your PC, download and run the installation file above. Continue following on-screen instructions to complete the setup process.

2. Select Clone Brush

On the Tools toolbar, choose the Clone Brush tool.

3. Adjust brush properties

On the Tool Options palette, choose the brush tip, size, opacity, and other settings. If you want the Clone Brush tool to reset the source point each time you resume painting, mark the Aligned mode check box. You can continue dragging over the target area to fill in the source image. Unmark the check box if you want every stroke to copy the same data from the original source point. If you want to clone data from all layers merged together, mark the Use all layers checkbox. If you want to clone data from the current layer only, unmark the check box.

4. Define the source area

On the source image, right-click the center point of the source area. If the image has more than one layer, click the name of the layer on the Layers palette before you define the source area.

5. Adjust position

Drag in the image where you want to paint the cloned area. If you want to hide or show the clone source overlay, click the Show Overlay checkbox on the Tool Options palette or press Ctrl + Alt + C.
