Clone Brush Engine¶
The clone brush is a brush engine that allows you to paint with a duplication of a section of a paint-layer. This is useful in manipulation of photos and textures. You have to select a source and then you can paint to copy or clone the source to a different area. Other applications normally have a separate tool for this, Krita has a brush engine for this.
Usage and Hotkeys¶
To see the source, you need to set the brush-cursor settings to brush outline.
The clone tool can now clone from the projection and it’s possible to change the clone source layer. Press Ctrl + Alt + to select a new clone source on the current layer. Ctrl + to select a new clone source point on the layer that was active when you selected the clone op.
Ctrl + Alt + is temporarily disabled on 2.9.7
This turns the clone brush into a healing brush: often used for removing blemishes in photo retouching, and maybe blemishes in painting.
- Perspective correction
Only works when there’s a perspective grid visible.

- Source Point move.
This will determine whether you will replicate the source point per dab or per stroke. Can be useful when used with the healing brush.
- Clone from all visible layers.
Tick this to force cloning of all layers instead of just the active one.
