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 what 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, layer, or 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.
