The Clone Stamp

The Clone Stamp offers another way to make repairs. It works like the Healing brush in that you sample a good area and apply it to the area you want to fix. But instead of blending the repair in, the Clone Stamp covers the bad area with the replacement. The Clone Stamp is best for situations when you want to completely hide the underlying area, as opposed to letting any of what's already there blend into your repair (which is how things works with the Healing brushes). The Clone Stamp is also your best option when you want to create a realistic copy of detail that's elsewhere in your photo. You can clone over some leaves to fill in a bare branch, or replace a knothole in a fence board with good wood, for instance.
