I'm trying to use the clone stamping, on an image in Photoshop, but I keep getting this message:
"Could not use the clone stamp because the area to clone has not been defined (Option-click to define a source point)."
What do I do???
 

Don't panic

as they say:
select the clone-stamping tool, move your cursor to the source point of the area to be cloned, option-click, move to the target area and stamp

Hold down option then mouse click the area you want to set as your source. Let go of option then mouse click where ever you want to reproduce your source.

Edit: beaten by seconds :(
