The Clone Source Panel
This panel has a couple of neat features for people who spend a lot of time in cloning. You can now set up a series of preset areas in the Clone Stamp tool. Simply click on one of the icons at the top of the Clone Source panel and Option-click (PC: Alt-click) on a point. That will save that location to the first icon. Click on the second icon and do the same thing. Now you can save a series of location points and go back by just clicking on the icon.
Would you mind offering a scenario where this might be useful. I am not seeing a need for something. It seems to be more trouble than it’s worth or perhaps I am just not getting it.
One scenario could be to sample from other documents (I prefer copy-and-pasting to the working document instead of “cross-sampling”).
Another could be, if you need exactly that one pixel to clone to another area. Here you could “save” the location with a preaset icon (I also would copy-and-past I think).
Another situation coulb be to save various angles, scales, positions and combinations of them.
A more usefull situation (but I can’t double check at moment) is, to set on preset with clone preview, another without, another with difference, another with lower opacity,… and so an. But as I mentioned, I now don’t know if this option get saved in the preset icons, because I’m not a my computer.
