I am currently having problems with my Adobe Photoshop and my operating system is Linux. Every time I work with the clone stamp tool the following message would pop up “Could not use the clone stamp tool because the area to clone has not been defined (Alt+Click to define a source point)”. How can I work around this problem?
Adobe Photoshop problems using the clone stamp tool experienced in Linux OS
At first I thought the program you are using is having problems or is not working properly. You just misunderstood how the Clone Stamp Tool works and how to use it. When you use this tool in Adobe Photoshop, it’s just like copying a specified or predefined region to your target area. It will appear like patching the target area using the pre-selected area.
To use the Clone Stamp Tool, activate it first by clicking it on the Tools panel located on the left side of the screen or by simply hitting S on your keyboard. When the Clone Stamp Tool is already activated, press and hold the ALT key then select an area in your image by clicking it with your left-mouse button. Just release the ALT key after selecting the area. You can now apply or copy the selected area to your desired portion in your image. Use the left-mouse button to apply the changes to the image.
