I am now using Photoshop CS5 v12.1 x64 after using CS4 for a number of years. I am having significant problems with the clone stamp. The area cloned is darker than the source area. This renders the tool useless. I use cloning a lot so I am very concerned at this flaw in CS5. Could you please help.

Many thanks

Check the tool options, and the clone source palette - you probably forgot a setting that you made previously (like the blend mode).

(of course, the last time someone claimed something similar they were fooled by an optical illusion)
