Having an issue with the clone stamp.

I've got the layer I want to work with. I've made sure I am in the layer, not the composition. I've selected the clone tool. I hold down the Option key and click where I want to clone from. I see the crosshairs come up. After clicking I let go of the option key. I click where I want to clone to and drag my curser. I see the crosshairs moving where I previously clicked, but nothing is copying over to where I am dragging my curser around. My brush opacity and flow are at 100%. I go down to my timeline. I can see that a "Clone 1" was made in the effects on my current layer. I check my stroke options again there. Opacity and flow are at 100%. I can see the path my stroke has just taken. But nothing has coped over. I am left with my original image.

Any ideas as to what setting I am missing? I've searched through many tutorials and forums and have not found an answer that has worked yet.

Thanks!

I'm having the same problem. But if I open the photo directly in Photoshop from my desktop (vs. opening Photoshop when my photo is in Lightroom), the clone tool works.

Hi all,

I'm also having the same problem and I'm sending a screen to see if someone can help us. The red "crosshairs" in the yellow rectangle are the ones mentioned by heatherm59177256.I've tried using the roto brush, but instead of copying the blood from the top, it only gives me those thin lines as the brush size was ridiculously small. My brush size it at 28px at the moment. Also paling opacity and flow at 100%.

Any help would be must appreciated.

Check your paint panel settings - particularly things like channels, mode...

Hi Mike,

Thank you for your suggestion. Actually I found out the problem was on the "Brushes" settings, under Brush Dynamics> Size. The default was set to pen pressure and once turned of, it gave the regular results of the Roto Brush tool.

I hope it helps the others too.

I'm having the same problem as well. The layer I am trying to clone stamp won't work. Weirdly enough another layer that I used the clone stamp for worked great. It's just that one layer.
