OK I am new to PSCS 2 I need to find out how to clone. I know how to select the section I want to clone but for the life of me I can not find how to paste that piece somewhere else on the image. By the way I am using the MAC version.

Thanks for the help!

I'm not sure if we're talking about the same thing or not, but to use the clone stamp tool, you select the area you want to clone from by holding down the 'option' key and clicking (the cursor should have turned into a kind of a bullseye). Then, when you let go of of the 'option' key, the cursor should turn back into what ever brush size you have it set at (usually, depending on how you have your cursors set up in your preferences). Then all you do is drag the clone stamp brush over the area you want to clone onto.

Or are you talking about selecting an area using the marquee or lasso or something like that and pasting a copy from that selection?

Option click on the source for the clone and then click and drag where you want to clone or you can just click the mouse where you want to clone and it will copy from the area you marked. Keep in mind that you can select the opacity of the cloned material and if you selected a very low opacity, you might not see any results.

Cheers,

just remember once you release the mouse button you are stuck with it.
You will have more control of the "clone" if you make your selection and then copy it to a new level (cmd J). By holding the cmd key and clicking on the selection you can drag it anywhere you want. More over once you have the "clone" elevated to its own level you can add masks, change opacity, add adjustment layers, change shape and or size, etc. Plus you have not changed or altered the original.
