I have seen this a few times.

First, in this case which was pretty simple, I used no layers.

I had a lamp post at night, background pretty dark, some shrub branches, pretty simple for cloning.

The lamp post was tilted (for real) and I wanted to straighten it ...

  • selected the post and the lamp on top as a rectangle
  • selected "Move" and rotated it a few degrees, leaving some small black areas around the rectangle
  • applied the transformation
  • went to clone over the black areas (remember, no layers) but it would not clone!
  • saved the image (as a tiff) and re-opened it and cloning was just fine

Is this a bug? or - more likely - did I do something wrong or miss a step?

Dennis Smith.
