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"

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.

My Photoshop Elements 6 Program that I have used in the past suddenly wont open when I click the icon to open it. what can I do to fix this problem.


Hi sarahlove91:

Try using the task manager to see if Photoshop is offering to update your software. Hold down the Ctrl and Alt buttons and spush delete to open the task manager. It will list the programs you are currently running. If the updator is listed, click on it so that it is highlighted and than click on end task. It should disapear from the list. Try to open Photoshop Elements again.

Adobe Photoshop Elements 7 Editor "stops working"


Even though this says Elements 6, it still works for 7. The only difference is the TWAIN file is at: C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Photoshop Elements 7.0\Locales\en_US\Plug-Ins\Import-Export
