Hi,

I used to use healing brush and clone tool for touch up of my photo.

Of late, when I the healing brush and clone tool, I always got the error msg - Option click to define a source point - even though I have already Option click. Can any one enlighten me on this matter.

Many thanks in advance

try using another keyboard... sometimes, it might be due to a key getting stuck, so that the "option" key does not register when you try to make a source point

Healing and clone are 2 different tools.
Healing doesn't require a source point, you just select the layer, adjust the brush size and click on the area.

For clone, it does require a reference point. You hold the Alt key and left click on a reference point, then click on the area you want to clone out.

that's the "Spot Healing" tool, not the "Healing" tool... "Healing" requires a source...

believe the TS is a Mac user, thus the "Option" rather than "Alt" key...
