Clone your Source Image
Creative Cloning Techniques With Corel Painter
By Sue Chastain
In order to pick up the underlying colors of the original image we must "Clone" the source image. When you have made all your image corrections, you are ready to paint. Save the source image with a new name and save it in a place where you can locate it quickly should you need to use it again. From the Window menu choose File > Clone. You have now created a clone or duplicate of the source image. The "clone of" image is the image we will paint on. Save this file as well. Use a descriptive name and save it where you can locate it easily.
