    No matter what size brush I use the area cloned is still markedly smaller than the brush circumference and does not permit accurate placement.

This is due to the smaller size of brush you taken. Increase the size of brush and your cloning area will automtically increase.

I cannot access my Clone stamp tool; it is stuck on Pattern stamp. How can I recover it?


You know, all those tool icons in the pallette that have little triangles in the lower right have 'alternates', which are made available by clicking and holding on the tool icon. The tool alternate choices should swing out... then you can click back on your previous clone tool.

How can we change the color of the clone stamp tool pointer?


You can't. You can change the size by going to Edit > Preferences > Cursors, but you can't change the colour.

Instead you will see colour shifts depending on what background colour is underneath the cursor. It's generally darker over light colours.

Clone tool for Photoshop elements 6 not working


I just replied to this question of yours on another post.
I also, reading it again here, notice you would "hate reload it..." - pls note one of my options, to delete the preferences, is as reloading as what you are doing is deleting all that you have customised in the program. Read below, again....

I have not experienced this, but there's talk about some plug-ins effecting the clone tool's function.
A couple of suggestions to try:
- Remove you third party plug-ins one by one until you find the one that affects how the tool works. Bare in mind that some removals may require a restart to be effective.
- Delete your Photoshops preferences, hold Ctrl+Alt+Shift when launching Photoshop until a pop-up window asks you are you sure you want to delete the preferences. NOTE that this will delete all your p'shop settings and customisations, it'll be like you've just installed it again. Failing that, you can go to C:Docs&Settings\<user>\Applic Data\Adobe\Photoshop\6\Adobe PShop Settings\ and delete the file that says something like "Photoshop 6 Prefs.psp"

Cannot achieve accurate adjustment of Photoshop's cloning tool.


gillesp, I tried to replicate what you were saying and I couldn't 'make' it happen. I was thinking along the lines that you had some airbrush setting on, but even that would not reduce the clone amount by much.
something you can try is to go to your brush size drop-down pallete (in the top right corner) and across to the options arrow and down there there is "Reset Brushes" - this will remove all your custom brushes and reset it to installed defaults.
Another thing, I don't know how much you know about this, so forgive me if I'm telling what you know: When you have the rubber stamp tool or paint brush or pencil tool or eraser selected, there is a drop down option of brush sizes and types in the top left corner of the window under the menus - here you can select the size of brush, but also change the characteristics of the brush, whether the edges are soft or hard and its size and intensity. If you weren't aware of this, try adjusting these settings.

How to delete someone using Adobe Photoshop CS3?


It will depend on the background as to how easy or hard this will be.

Read the help files on using the Cloning Stamp.

First I would cut out the person(s) directly adjacent to the person you want to remove (take your time to get this done accurately - enlarge the view to say 300% - note that you can do sections at a time and ADD to the selections until you have all of the people you want - you only need to do this along the edges of the area that you want to erase the person from - COPY the selection, do not CUT the selection).

Paste this back as a new layer. Slide this to one side.

The reason for doing this is to make the next step easier without having to worry about working up to an edge.

Now working with the background layer:

If the background is easy - use 100%, then blend in by selecting another cloning area of a similar background and use it sparingly at say 25% to make the new area look different from the original cloning area. I would just remove "noticeable" objects - possibly by just selecting a spot and clicking once (doing this as many times as you need to.

If the bacground is difficult - you will need to "construct" the background using the Clone Stamp - for instance, if there is a tree branch that needs to be extended through the new area - you may have to carefully clone it bit by bit until it looks right - don't forget to clone from different areas if the background is trees as trees do not tend to have long straight branches.

When you have done all of this, go back to Layer 1 (the new one you created earlier) and slide this back into position.

Under Layers in the Menu Bar - defringe the image (layer 1) - this will blend it back in better (experiment with the number of pixels). Then flatten the image.
