Can someone please explain what I am doing wrong? In the screenshot below, I have selected the banana on the left. I want to clone stamp that selection onto the banana on the right. I created a layer on which to do this as my very top layer. When I am on that Layer (Layer 22), and clone stamp inside the selection, then paint over the banana on the right, nothing happens. Shouldn't the banana selection be appearing where I am stamping? Thanks.
When you have an active selection, the clone stamp only works inside the selection. Deselect and try again.
Thank you. The problem is, I want to only copy the banana in the source layer, not the white area outside of it. As you can see in the screenshot below, while the banana matches in both layers, the white area in the source layer is brighter than in the target layer. That is why I made a selection of the banana, hoping to copy it only. Is there a way to do that? Thank you.
Have you tried to duplicate selected banana (Ctrl + J) then to drag it where you want?
I did that, and it works. Thank you. I just thought there was maybe a way to do this using the Clone Stamp, but it achieves the same result.

If you want to use the Clone Stamp tool, select the banana you want to replace and do the cloning on a new layer for non-destructive editing.
