Moderators are authorized to: (in order of increasing severity)
Move posts to the correct forums. Many times, members post in the wrong forum. These off-topic posts may impede the normal operation of the forum.
Edit posts. Moderators will edit posts that are offensive or break any of the House Rules.
Delete posts. Posts that cannot be edited to comply with the House Rules will be deleted.
Restrict members. This is one of the last punishments before a member is banned. Restrictions may include placing all new posts in a moderation queue or temporarily banning the offender.
Ban members. The most severe punishment. Three or more moderators or administrators must agree to the ban for this action to occur. Banning is reserved for very severe offenses and members who, after many warnings, fail to comply with the House Rules. Banning is permanent. Bans cannot be removed by the moderators and probably won't be removed by the administration.

The Rules

1. Warez, copyright violation, or any other illegal activity may NOT be linked or expressed in any form. Topics discussing techniques for violating these laws and messages containing locations of web sites or other servers hosting illegal content will be silently removed. Multiple offenses will result in consequences. File names are not required to discuss your issues. If filenames are copyright then do not belong on these forums & will be edited out or post removed. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

2. Spamming and excessive advertising will not be tolerated. Commercial advertising is not allowed in any form, including using in signatures.

3. There will be no excessive use of profanity in any forum.

There are specific Gnutella Client sections for LimeWire, Phex, FrostWire, BearShare, Gnucleus, Morpheus, and many more. Please choose the correct section for your problem.

7. If you see a post in the wrong forum or in violation of the House Rules, please contact a moderator via Private Message or the "Report this post to a moderator" link at the bottom of every post. Please do not respond directly to the member - a moderator will do what is required.

8. Any impersonation of a forum member in any mode of communication is strictly prohibited and will result in banning.

9. Multiple copies of the same post will not be tolerated. Post your question, comment, or complaint only once. There is no need to express yourself more than once.

Keep in mind a forum censor may temporarily automatically hold up your post, if you do not see your post, do not post again, it will be dealt with by a moderator within a reasonable time. Authors of multiple copies of same post may be dealt with by moderators within their discrete judgment at the time which may result in warning or infraction points, depending on severity as adjudged by the moderators online.

10. Posts should have descriptive topics. Vague titles such as "Help!", "Why?", and the like may not get enough attention to the contents.

11. Do not divulge anyone's personal information in the forum, not even your own. This includes e-mail addresses, IP addresses, age, house address, and any other distinguishing information. Don´t use eMail addresses in your nick. Reiterating, do not post your email address in posts. This is for your own protection.

12. Signatures may be used as long as they are not offensive or sexually explicit or used for commercial advertising. Commercial weblinks cannot be used under any circumstances and will result in an immediate ban.

13. Dual accounts are not allowed. Cannot explain this more simply. Attempts to set up dual accounts will most likely result in a banning of all forum accounts.

14. Video links may only be posted after you have a tally of two forum posts. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam.

15. Failure to show that you have read the forum rules may result in forum rules breach infraction points or warnings awarded against you which may later total up to an automatic temporary or permanent ban. Supplying system details is a prerequisite in most cases, particularly with connection or installation issues.

Violation of any of these rules will bring consequences, determined on a case-by-case basis.

Thank You! Thanks for taking the time to read these forum guidelines. We hope your visit is helpful and mutually beneficial to the entire community.

Default Cloning in Photoshop CS5

Can anyone kindly let me have a stepbystep tutorial on how to use the cloning tool in Photoshop CS5 ?

Why is it that when I choose the brush size and a circle pops up to show me the size chosen, that circle vanishes as soon as I release the right button on the mouse?

Could it be that I am doing something wrong ? I always ensure that "Aligned Sample" on the toolbar is unchecked and that "All Layers" is checked and that "Mode" is set to "Normal."

I have noticed that even though the brush circle vanishes, cloning is possible but this is not satisfactory as what happens is that the cloning of parts of the picture that take place are not the ones that I choose.

In Photoshop 7, I used to choose the part of the picture that I wanted to clone by clicking on the circle over that part of the picture that I chose. But now, in Photoshop CS5, the brush circle vanishes nad I have no control on cloning.

Hope I am not confusing the issue and I thank you beforehand for helping an old age pensioner who is slow to learn.

When selecting brushes, it is best to choose one that suits what you are trying to achieve. In general, I choose a hard edge brush. If you are wanting faint edges so that it blends in with the edges of where you are cloning to, then choose a soft edge brush, if only for the edges of the cloning location.

I set the size of the brush manually. On the menu bar, you will see the brush size. Example: 12 px which represents a brush of 12 pixels wide.
You can select that size box and type in the size you desire. Example, change 12 px to 3. No need to put the px after the number. Then simply press enter/return key after changing the number inside the brush size box. You can also use the slider to change the brush size.

In the example below, I show using brush 4 as the selection, ie: Hard Round Pressure Size. If you hold your cursor overtop of the brush type, it will say what kind of brush it is.
Experiment with the brushes to see their effects.

Cloning in Photoshop CS5-clone-brush-selectio-size-flat.gif

For the cursor, go to Photoshop preferences, select the Cursors category. I presently have it set to Normal Brush Tip for Painting Cursor. And Other Cursor set to Standard. However choose what suits you. The Clone selection cursor will only be as large as the Clone paint brush is set to.

Cloning in Photoshop CS5-clone-selecting.gif Shows how the Clone cursor selector changes color depending on the background to make it easier to see. A size 8 px brush was used in this example.

I sometimes use the selection tool to select the area I wish to clone to, so I do not clone outside the desired area. Example, the Polygonal Lasso Tool. Or whichever selection tool you feel most comfortable with or easiest or most accurate to use in the situation.

To use the Clone tool, select it in the Tools. Then hold down the Alt key (Option key on Mac) same time you select the area you wish to clone from on the image (a circled cross will show whilst you press the Alt key which you can direct to where you wish to clone from.) After pressing the cursor onto the starting point of the clone-from point, release the Alt key. Move your cursor to where you wish to clone to and you will see your cursor ready to use to clone. Press the cursor onto the area desired to begin clone painting. Remember, the Alt/Option key is only used to set the clone-from (source) start point of the cloning. The Alt key should be released before you start clone-painting.

If you are cloning from one layer to another, you first need to have the clone-from layer selected in the Layers palette when you set the clone-from source point. Then select the layer you wish to clone to in the Layers palette and move the cursor to where you wish to clone to.

Here is a quick example:

Cloning in Photoshop CS5-clone-stamp-use-b.gif

Notice the circled-cross (like a gun target) as I hover the cursor over the image ready to select the cloning point whilst holding down the Alt/Option key.

As soon as I have selected the clone-from point (source point) and let go of the Alt key, the cursor turns to a circle to show it is ready for clone-painting.

Then as I begin to clone-paint, the cursor turns to an arrow to show the point where I am clone-painting. And the point I am cloning from (the source) is marked with a small cross.

BTW skies can be very difficult to clone because skies often have lots of varying subtle hues of blue, grey and off-white which do not always match up well.
