SUPERCHARGE The Clone Stamp Tool in Photoshop – Clone Source Panel Keyboard Shortcuts


In this tutorial, you will learn to supercharge the Clone Source tool in Photoshop by using keyboard shortcuts.

Clone Source Panel Keyboard Shortcuts

When using the Clone Stamp Tool, you can use keyboard shortcuts to nudge, scale, or rotate the sample source to better match the size and orientation of the cloning destination.

First, set the sample point by holding Alt (Mac: Option) and clicking on an area to sample from. You will then see an overlay of your sample source.

  • Hold Alt (Mac: Option) Shift and tap on the Arrow keys (left, right, up, and down) to nudge the Clone Source.
  • Hold Alt (Mac: Option) Shift < or > to rotate the Clone Source.
  • Hold Alt (Mac: Option) Shift { or } to scale the Clone Source.

You can also use the Clone Source panel (Window > Clone Source) to make these changes to the sample source in case you forget the Photoshop keyboard shortcuts.
