Chapter 13. Retouching > Rubber Stamp Tool

Rubber Stamp Tool

The Rubber Stamp tool is often called the clone tool because that's what it does. (In fact, its “nickname” was such a good fit that in this version of Photoshop it's been officially renamed the Clone Stamp tool, but we all know the old name is better.) It copies information from one area of your image and applies it somewhere else. Before applying the Rubber Stamp tool, there is one thing you should know. All retouching tools use the Brushes palette, shown in Figure 13.1. So you have to decide if you want what you're about to apply to fade into the image or to have a distinct edge. For most applications it helps to have a soft edge on your brush so you can't see the exact edge of where you've stopped.

Figure 13.1. The brush that you choose determines how much your retouching work will blend into the underlying image.
