bonjour, j'utilise pse8 et l'outil tampon ne fonctionne pas, je recois le message: "impossible d'utiliser l'outil Tampon de duplication en raison d'une erreur du programme.", j'ai fait une réinstallation de pse8, mais rien ne change, toute le reste du programme fonctionne normalement.
l'installation est faite sur windows 7 64bit avec 8Go de memoire RAM.
merci de me proposer une solution

Hello, I use the stamp tool and pse8 does not work, I receive the message: "impossible to use the Clone Stamp tool due to program error." I did a reinstall pse8 but nothing changes, all the rest of the program is operating normally.
the installation is done on windows 7 64bit with 8GB of RAM memory.
thank you for a solution

Have you tried to delete the preferences of application by pressing command+alt+shift at the time of application launch?

I'm having problems with the clone tool - unable to use is - I don't get a message but I get a circle with a + sign a distance from it. I tried the resetting the tools, pressing command+alt+shift - no change.
I then installed the Elements 10 on a trial basis and it does the same thing. I planned on buying the 10 but now hesitate to do so.

hi,

To use the clone stamp tool first make the sample point by pressing alt,
If you have made several layers and want to sample all the layers check-box is checked.
paint the area where you want to cloning.

As you said you see the plus sign a distance from circle.This + sign is showing the sampling location and you said it does not paint . It may have due to either reasons-
1) Your sampling location contains nothing as you did not check the sample all layers check-box or it contains blank area at selected layer.
2)you paint on a layer which is underneath another layer so painting is occurring but you are not able to see it.
