Could you please post screenshots with the pertinent Panels (Toolbar, Layers, Options Bar, Clone Source, …) visible?
Might it not make more sense to use the Layers as are and apply a Layer Mask to the top one and paint on that?
What version of Photoshop are you using, can you post a screenshot with all the pertinent panels opened to highlight the issue
Yeah, I guess near-identical-comtent, near-simultaneous posts happen again and again on these Fora …
I wonder if the OP’s issue might just be about the display caused by an unchecked »Clipped«-setting in the Clone Source Panel.
I didnt see it I will look to see this post to see if its similar - thank you
Photoshop 2021 - 22.3.1 on Mac
I do not see a second Layer in the Layers Panel and where is the Clone Source Panel?
When I try to use the clone stamp on the second image I select Option button (Mac) and left click - I then go to image one it overlays the iamge witht he second image - does that make more sense?
As mentioned before I recommend working with Layer Masks.
Can you give me a link on how to do that please? - normally I do a clone with several images thanks
My file would not be useful.
File > Scripts > Load Files into Stack
to stack the images and then apply a Layer Mask (Layer > Layer Mask > Hide All) to the top one and paint with white on the Layer Mask to reveal that Layer.
Thank you anyway for your help apprecaite it
Is »Clipped« checked in the Clone Source Panel?

I specifically asked about the »Clipped«-setting – have you tried that before turning off »Show Overlay«?
