Hi to all.

Newbie to this program and studying in depth on many tutorials. Still hard work getting familiar.!

Main question right now is to do with cloning -- when I have set my target spot, that moves with the clone destination brush. However, in an old program I used a lot (Picture Publisher) I was able to lock the target point so that clone brush could move anywhere using that target content.

Is this possible in photo?

I couldn't find an answer to this anywhere so far - sorry if it's been covered before.

I think what you want can be done by unchecking the Aligned box in the Context menu. From the built-in help topic "Clone Brush Tool" there is this:

Aligned—when selected (default), the origin of the sample remains a fixed distance from the pointer. If this option is off, the origin of the sample always returns to the sample location defined initially.


If you have difficulties finding this help topic, in the Table of Contents section the path to it is Workspace > Tools > Retouching Tools > Clone Brush Tool.
