  1. Select one of the following mode:
    Clone: Duplicate the sampled area of the image to the selected area.
    Heal: Match the texture, lighting, and shading of the sampled area to the selected area.
  2. Set the brush for appropriate size, hardness and opacity in the options panel:
    To adjust brush size, scroll mouse wheel or tweak the "Size" slider in the panel.
    Dropping the "Hardness" of the brush will give you a soft edged brush so that the transition to the surrounding area is gradual.
    Moving the "Opacity" slider to the left will add some transparency to the clone/heal area.
  3. To specify how you want to align the sampled pixels, set the following in the options bar:
    Aligned On: Samples pixels continuously, without losing the current sampling point, even if you release the mouse button.
    Aligned Off: Continue to use the sampled pixels from the initial sampling point each time you stop and resume painting.
  4. To set the sampling source you want to copy from, move your mouse to the area you want to duplicate and [Ctrl+Click].
  5. Drag over the area of the image you want to correct.
