sample point

The reference point that provides pixel data to determine how certain Photoshop tools operate. For example, the Clone Stamp tool uses a sample reference point to determine which pixel values it should paint into the image. The Background eraser also uses a sample point to determine which part of the image to erase.



scaling

The act of enlarging or reducing an image, a layer, or an effect. Although an entire image can be resized, scaling can also modify the size of a textured filter effect in relation to the image. In a burlap filter, for example, the scaling affects the coarseness of the weave.
