Pixlr Lesson 4 - cloning Stamp Tool

The cloning tool will allow to you copy a part of an image into another section of the same image - it is great for touching up the edges if you are combining sections of images, or just want to duplicate something in the image itself

Look on the toolbar for the cloning stamp tool - it looks like a rubber stamp.

Once you have selected it there are several options to choose for size, shape, opacity, etc.

Click the area you want to copy, and then move your mouse to the area you want to copy into:
- on a mac (alt+command), on a PC it should be ctrl+click, not sure about a chromebook just yet - we will find out!

  • ** Change the brush size as needed so you don't pick up too much of the surrounding area
  • If you make a mistake remember that you can choose Edit - Undo Clone or Edit - Step Backward
  • You can also use the same tool to fix up areas that you might cloned too much into

In this image I added an extra tulip leaf on the table and another stem in the vase

And in this set I replaced the chair with flowers and background trees and grass
