Clone Tool

Posting rules: It shouldn't need saying, but... play nice. Please keep your discussions civil. You can disagree, just don't be disagreeable. And, of course, all of the usual stuff like no spamming. Tex adds: I'll be rigorously enforcing this as we go along. We're probably going to be a small community in a little lifeboat, so we can't have members at each others' throats. This is for the sake of the project as a whole. So when you post, pretend you're speaking in person with your very wealthy auntie who has always treated you wonderfully and currently lists you prominently in her will. I won't be tossing anyone out of the forums because we are all in this together (except spammers: immediate membership cancelation), but I'll delete suspect posts right away.

Clone Tool

When I use the clone tool to select an area and then move it to cover up a flaw, I notice that if the flaw is near the edge of the photograph, a black splodge appears.  Any ideas as to why?


How to fine tune cloning

The clone tool copies the area around the cross into the area. Double click the area so that you see the corner points and the cross. Move the cross towards the center of the image so you should get rid of the black area. I also recommend to keep the area outside the image small as Lightzone also copies into those outside areas. Unfortunately Lightzone clones the area after cropping so even there would be material to be copied outside the cropped area the result will be black (here is a link to an older thread).



Thanks very much for the info

Thanks very much for the info and suggestions.  Hopefully that will solve my problem.
