Clone Tool Tutorial

Its Heather here going to show you a tutorial on the clone too. First off here is the clone tool in the photoshop palette
This tool is amazing for stamping out small blimishes all the way to deleting someone from the picture. For example:
That spot right there (among other spots that i would take out) bothers me. So i select the tool. Then you click "alt" and click on a "clean" spot of her cheek close to the spot i want to clone out. Basically what you are doing is chosing a good spot for it to "take" from and to paint over the blemish. After alt clicking a spot, paint slowly over the spot you want to cover. But watch the cross, it shows you where it is taking from. This sometimes can take a few tries to get it right. This being a small spot it didn't take much to then get it to look like this:After you practice this a few times you can remove people, or things you want out of the picture. The most important thing to remember is to reselect sometimes. Here I took a picture of my other daughter with her trophy and took out the trophy.

After:Now there was a lot of differences in the dirt so its not the best example but you get the idea. So play around and come back and show us your before and after.

Thank you! I was wondering how that icon/function worked.
