AN INTRODUCTION TO THE CLONE STAMP TOOL

by Allen Turner

We hope you learned something new in this quick introduction to the Clone Stamp Tool and are excited to apply what you’ve learned to your own images. Just remember, every image is unique and there is never only one way to approach a retouching challenge, so be sure to practice a variety of techniques.


We'd like to thank Nico Socha, the Beauty & Fashion photographer and retoucher from Germany, who supplied our example image and kindly agreed to share his Raw file with our readers so they can follow along and practice. Please find the download below.

Nico has granted our readers permission to practice with the image and display both their retouched version and the original on their websites with proper credit to him as the photographer, for noncommercial purposes only. The image may not be sold or otherwise distributed.

IMAGE FOR PRACTICE

Please register on our website to access the [RE]TOUCHED magazine bonus materials. You will find the Zipped Raw file of the photo at the bottom of the Member Area on our website when you're logged in. Be sure to download the Raw image when you're on your computer, not on your tablet. Tablets can't handle ZIP files; besides, there is no use of the Raw file on your tablet in terms of practicing retouching.

Share your retouched version with us on www.facebook.com/retouchedmag or tag us #RETOUCHEDmag on any social media.
