Whenever I try to use the clone stamp tool to remove eye bags from photos, I am suppossed to do an alt-click, but since I don't have alt on my computer, I was told to use the option key and do an option-click. However, it always says there is an error because I could not select a surface. What other ways can I use this tool without this problem occurring?
