I've used older generations of Photoshop for years but recently got Elements 9. The Clone tool has a mind of its own! I'm used to the "manual version" of dropping the clone where I want it not where the program thinks it should go. A nice feature at times but frustrating to make small adjustments.
Is there a way of overriding the "auto-plunk" feature?
Thanks, Roger
