Clone Brush Problem with Flip Horizontal

Recommended Posts

I first noticed this problem in 1.6.5.123 but it's also in 1.7.0.251 so I'm adding it here.  The issue is at least one of the clone brush options do not recognize image rotations.

I open an image

which I straighten

I select the clone brush, alt-click the inner corner of the monkey's right eye (our left) and clone it to the upper left.

Then I change the clone Flip option to Horizontal and repeat the clone:

Note the highlights in the eyes: AP flipped the cloned section horizontally, but is sampling from the original, unrotated image.  I expected to get a mirror image of the same leveled eye.

Not on my system !!
Horizontal or vertical flip, both act as expected ...

Maybe the OP could provide  a "full screen" snapshot (with the layers panel & context toolbar visible)  or even better attach the native " .afphoto" file.

I think the OP is right

You need to Rasterise the image after you rotate it to get the expected results from the Clone Tool when using the Flip horizontal setting (and Flip vertical)


Due to the fact that Boris Johnson is now our Prime Minister, punctuation, spelling and grammar will never be worried about ever again.  We now have far bigger problems to be concerned about.

This occurs only when cloning to the same layer not when cloning onto a new pixel layer as per your screenshot

I did rasterise but I didn't rotate my document anywhere near enough for this to be noticable!

Indeed, confirmed.
