Copy and pasting a certain part of the image

Ive recently started using Cortel Painter Essentials 5, and am having some difficulty. Im trying to make a background for an image Im later going to add layers to. The background is peaches. Ive drawn one peach and want to cut the image of that peach and paste it over and over in the background. Since ive just started, Im pretty confused on how to do that. I tried to use the stamp tool but cant seem to get that to work. Ive also tried tracing the peach with the magic wand but dont know what to do from there. Youtube and other parts of the internet hasnt helped me at all honestly and I havent seen any similar questions on this website. Help would be greatly appreciated.

  • Make a selection of the peach with the lasso and copy (Ctrl+C) and then paste (Ctrl+V). That will place it on a new layer and then you need only duplicate the layer as many times as you need.
    You could have simply painted the peach on its own new layer in the first place but if you have painted it on the canvas and the rest is white then you can use the magic wand to select the surrounding white and then invert the selection to select the peach - copy/paste into new layer, etc.
