Removing Unwanted Objects with Clone

The Clone tool can help remove unwanted elements from your image by sampling similar areas of the same image. You’ll find the Clone tool in the Touch-Up section of the Photo Editor.

This tool is only available for BeFunky Plus subscribers. Upgrade your subscription here!


Step 1: Open your image in the Photo Editor. Then, go into the Touch Up section and select Clone.

Step 2: Adjust Brush Size and Brush Hardness. Brush Size determines the surface area of your Clone tool, while Brush Hardness determines how soft the outlines of your edits will be. A lower hardness level will provide a more feathered appearance.

Pro Tip: Using a lower Brush Hardness can help the selected source blend in better with the target area and make it appear natural.

Step 3: By default, when you open the Clone tool you’re ready to select your source. Just click on the area of your image you want to use to clone. To select another source area, use the Source Selection button to activate the selection tool, then click on the area of the image you want to use to Clone.

Pro Tip: To quickly select a new source while you're working, hold the Command/CTRL key and click on the area of the image you want to use to clone.

Step 4:  Position your cursor over the area you want to paint in the cloned area, then click and drag to start painting. The source selection target will move in tandem with your mouse to show you both the source selection and the area you're cloning.

Step 5: When you're done, click Apply. Continue adding to and editing your creation. If you're done, be sure to save your project!
