selecting part of an image, then pasting that image to another part of the image

Recommended Posts

It's easy to do ...

  1. select with the rectangle selection tool the shoulder area to copy/duplicate
  2. use copy/paste in order make a copy of the selected rectangular area into a new layer
  3. select the new layer with the rect portion with the move tool, drag and position the rect image portion to where you want it
  4. now perform a flip horizontal operation on the selected layer rect shoulder area
  5. (not shown) if you want you can merge together all visiable layers

Hi @Steve_1010

You can use the clone brush tool [S].
But if you start to clone right away you will have two left shoulders so you need a flipped source.

1) Set your clone tool to use a flipped horizontal source.


2) Define a point, on the left shoulder, that you want to clone (Alt+Mouse_Click).
3) Paint over the right shoulder


Dont forget to reset the clone brush to "Flip: none"

Thank you Lisbon. I had fiddled with the clone brush tool, too but I didn't know there was a flip function. I'm searching for it now. I only see a horizontal flip option for the picture. Could you tell me where to access the rotation scale flip window?

It's probably hidden. The same thing happens on my laptop.

After selecting the Clone Brush Tool [S] look a the top right corner of your screen for something like ">>"
