Cloning in photoshop

In this image of squeaky beach a distance torch light has added an unwanted distraction - however it is possible to clone this out in photoshop






When the image is open - select the clone tool - not the pattern stamp tool -



Move the curser to the area of tone you would like to clone or copy into the area where the light is- select he area by clicking Alt - you will see the circle area blink and turn to a circle with the cross through it.


it is easier to magnify the image so you have the section to be worked on as large as possible

We then move the curser over the area to be clones, left click and drag the curser to clone or paint over the desired area

Mouse over

Here we see the final image with the distracting light cloned out
