Cloning around with the Clone Stamp tool

The Clone Stamp tool is the equivalent of a rubber stamp (you know — press a stamp on an ink pad and then on paper), only it's digital: You sample part of an image (color, texture, whatever) and apply that sample elsewhere in the image. All Brush tips work with the Clone Stamp tool, so it's a great retouching alternative. One of its special versions, the Pattern Stamp tool, re-creates patterns from the cloned selection and applies to another part of the image. Figure 11-9 shows the Clone Stamp tool's flyout menu.
