We downloaded the trial version of Print Shop Pro X two days ago, yesterday I cloned from one photo to another without a problem, if I wanted the clone to appear smaller, I would just enlarge the photo the cloned part was going on. Today when I started working with it, the cloned part was at least 5 to 8 times LARGER than the original and I cannnot seem to fix it. Tried enlarging one or the other, reset the original factory settings, still the same, as we are complete novices, we could use some HELP, please? Thanks in advance,

This thread is miss leading I thought you were trying to copy Playstation Portable UMD's >.<

Sorry I can't offer any advise in your problem.

Jacque, are you cloning onto new layers? If so, I believe you can just resize the individual layer with the clone information and it will shrink it to fit your needs.

Have you tried changing the size of the brush (in PSP 9 brush size shows in one of the toolbars near the top of the window)

Jacque, in PSP9, you would do the following:

Select your base/background layer (View --> Palettes --> Layers to make the layer bar visible), right click, and choose "New Raster Layer"

Name it whatever you want, normal blend mode, and click OK.

Make sure the new layer is selected.

Clone as you normally would.. if the cloned material is too big, do the following (with new layer selected)

Image --> Resize

In the drop-down box under Pixel Dimensions, choose "Percent" Make sure aspect ratio is locked (check box at the bottom of the dialog box) and choose an amount to reduce the size of your layer. At the bottom, make sure that the "Resize All Layers" check box is NOT checked.

Click OK. Your single layer with your cloned material should be smaller while the rest of your image remains the same size.

One more thing to check is that both pictures have the same dpi. If you clone from a 72 dpi picture into a 150 dpi picture, you get a larger image appearing.

I don't get that when I clone. Not much help, but I don't think it's a general problem. you could try reinstalling. or going back to defaults.
