3.12. Perspective Clone

Figure 13.78. The “Perspective Clone” tool in the Toolbox

The Perspective Clone tool in the Toolbox

This tool allows you to clone according to the perspective you want. First, set the wanted vanishing lines in the same way as with the Perspective tool. Then copy the source area in the same way as with the Clone tool.

3.12.1. Activating the Tool

There are different possibilities to activate the tool:

  • From the image-menu: ToolsPaint toolsPerspective Clone.

  • The Tool can also be called by clicking the tool icon: in the Toolbox.

3.12.2. Key modifiers (Defaults)


Ctrl-click allows you to select a new clone source.


When the source is set and you press this key, you will see a thin line connecting the previously clicked point with the current pointer location. If you click again, while continuing to hold down the Shift key, the tool will clone along this line. Particularly useful when cloning from a pattern.
