You do all my Lasso selections in Quick Clone change into rectangular selections?
Why do all my Lasso selections in Quick Clone change into rectangular selections?
Hi Glenn, could be a bug not sure...are you using Painter 2021?
I just tried these steps:
1. Opened a photo
2. Created a Lasso selection
3. File > Quick Clone
In my case the selection was removed...which is expected when using the quick clone command. Maybe your steps are different?
Yes, different. In older versions of Painter I could use the lasso tool in Quick Clone. Now after Quick cloning using Lasso tool turns into rectangular selection.
I think Stephen is asking if those are the steps you're doing, or if maybe you're using different keys or actions. It sounds like he described lassoing and then quick cloning while you just described quick cloning and then lassoing.
Yes Quick Cloning and then Lasso tool, Thanks
A ha! thanks for the clarification, Glenn--looks like you found a bug! Here are the steps I tried:
1. Opened a JPG
2. File > Quick Clone
3. Created a Lasso selection
RESULT: selection works as expected
However, check this out:
1. Opened a PNG
RESULT: the selection turns to a rectangle
So it's definitely an issue. If your PNG file doesn't have transparency, then you could probably save as a TIFF (lossless compression) or JPG (lossy compression) and then File > Quick Clone using it...when I did these steps there was no bug.
Alternatively, if you need to use that particular PNG/don't want to have to use other file formats, I was able to get the Lasso selection working following these steps:
3. Select All
4. Select None.
5. Create a Lasso selection
Hope this helps (at least as a temporary measure)
