Once you know how the
clone tool works it is a very useful tool :o)
For this tutorial I
used a flower tube from
Open you tube in PSP
Open a new image by
clicking on the new image icon
I always make my canvas
big because I like to have plenty of room to work with.
Click on your flower
tube to make it the active canvas then right click on the bar at the top
of the canvas.
Click on Copy
Right click on the bar
at the top of your new canvas and click on Paste as new layer
Your flower tube will
now be on your new canvas and you can close the original.
If your tube is too
big, go to Image > Resize
Make sure all layers is
NOT ticked. I resized mine by 80%
Click on your Clone
Now RIGHT click on your
flower. This works by kind of taking a photo of your flower.
Add a new layer by
going to Layers > New Raster Layer
Go back to your new
canvas and LEFT click, keeping the button pressed, paint on the canvas
You will see your
flower picture start to appear. Keep painting.....
until you have a full
Clone of your flower
Now because your cloned
flower is on it's own layer it can moved around,. I flipped and mirrored
it by going to Image > Flip then Image > Mirror
Now you know how the
clone tool works you can use it for lot's of different projects :o)
I hope you enjoyed this
