The clone tool has stoped working

After loading image and selecting clone tool the latter comes up with the white circle crossed by diagonal black line. Also applies to paintbrush and eraser options.

I have tried a system restore procedure back to a date when I am sure function was working and have also tried a software repair by re-loading going for the repair option.

I know that cloning cannot be done, for example, after using layers but the problem is evident as soon as the image is loaded.

Serif offer no advice - software too old! Shoud I unistall and try installing program complete?

Any advice please.

Why is there two black spots in image on screen. Two round black circles. Not sure what it means and where they came from


1st make sure screen is clean. inspect when off. use only cloth slightly damp with water.
2nd make sure it is not the image by looking at another image or a blank white screen. Some test images will display each color.
if it is there on any image the pixels are dead. But being circles sounds more line screen cleaning

Screen image is split with diagonal slants


Hello Sashaone,

The F3 has the most extensive selection of focus screens ever made for a Nikon camera - 22 in all. The "L" and "P" will give you the diagonal split image rangefinder that you love. The difference is that the L has a groundglass/Fresnel lens field around the split prisms. The P has a microprism collar and an inscribed horizontal and vertical line forming a large cross.
You should also be aware that with slow lenses with maximum apertures of f/5.6 or so, these prisms tend to black out. Here, Nikon has solutions too, including the R screen, which has gentler slopes on the prisms to combat blacking out with small maximum aperture lenses. The R also has grids to help with composition, similar to the E. Then there are the all matte, all microprism, aerial image screens (C, M) too.
Personally, I have the C E K M R screens, in alphabetical order.
Some subset of these screens are available for the other Nikon F series cameras (F, F2, F3, F4, F5, F6), as well as the FM2, FE2, FM3a line, which can also interchange screens.

Thanks.

How to mix two images ? specially at border of picture.


1. Open the first image.
2. Open the image you want to merge or mix with the first image or border.
3. Press Ctrl + A to select the entire image.
4. Press Ctrl + C to copy the selected image.
5. Click in the title bar of the image you opened first.
6. Press Ctrl + V to paste the second image over the first image.
7. If the Layer window is not displayed press theF7 function on your keyboard.
8. Make sure the top layer is highlighted or click on the layer to highlight it.
You should see the border around the image. If you want to hide part of the top image at the bottom lower left of the layer window you will see rectangle with circle which displays add layer mask when you hover the mouse cursor over it. Hold the Alt key and click on the Add Layer Mask Icon. This will hide the top image until you select the brush with a white color and paint the layer mask layer. The Layer Mask is the black rectangle next to the layer image which must have the white rectangle around it when painting with the brush. If you do not see the top image mixing with the bottom image make sure the black rectangle is selected or click on the black rectangle to select it. If the layered image is selected you will be painting it white and alter the image. If you revile part of the image when painting the mask you can hide it by changing the brush color to black and painting the reviled layer to hide it again. Layer masks are very powerful which you will need to look up in the help files for more information to gain full power of the tool.

Where is the dodge tool?


Dodge tool should be on your toolbar- its like a black circle with a little line coming down diagonally from it- shares a button with sponge and burn so may be hidden behind them. Left hold click if it is that should bring up a little drop down that will let you select the tool you need.

Other than that, a much much better way to dodge/burn is to use layers- go to layers (top of the screen beside file, edit, etc)
select new->layer- this should open a box.
Now- set the colour drop down to none
Mode drop down- Set to soft light, feel free to experiment with hard light etc
Tick the soft light neutral colour (50%grey) box- should be at the bottom of the box.
Set opacity to somewhere between 5 and 10 %.
Click OK

This puts a new layer over your image, now you can use the paint brush- set your colours to black and white, you use white to dodge black to burn.
Though this may sound complicated, it soon becomes second nature once your used to it and gives you alot more control of your dodging and burning- leaving you with a much more 'natural' image. Once you get the hang of it you can add new layers (using the same process i went through above) to slowly build up your dodging and burning- changing the opacity level in the layer box to a higher setting means you put more paint on the image- your burning will be darker, dodging lighter.
Using mulitple layers also allows you to take away a dodge layer if you think you have gone to far- and saves you stepping backward when you mess up- its almost like painting.

My patch tool is working in reverse!


I just opened Photoshop, and tested this.

The patch tool works like this. You circle the portion of the image you want to use to cover the "white" area. Once you circled that area, you drag the selection to the "white" area.

Hope this helps.
