Here the Clone Stamp Tool seems to have a life of its own, and doesn't catch new samples...

[Quote:] clone tool problem. once i select a sample point from which to clone, i am stuck with it. if i go to a different part of the image and try to select a new sample point, rather than getting that area as a new sample, i get a circle of the original sample. i can't select a new one. please help, as i use p/s in my work. thank you, boyd bilbo.
This could be one of two settings:
* Be sure to set the "Aligned" option. If you don't, then the specific area you referenced in the beginning will be the starting point regardless of where you clicked.
* Make sure you haven't changed layers. If sampling from another layer, enable the "USE ALL LAYERS" check box in the Options bar.
(TIP: Also a good way to pick up elements of images across multiple layers to gather in a new layer!)
