    aaah, there it goes.

    that will be a tad more useful. I hadn't thought to check off that one.

    if you want to cycle through several types of mountains/hills/whatever, looks like you would still need to redefine after every stamp, but this is gonna make forests an absolute joy


    and after working with it a bit more, I'm finding the redefine after each placement to be not as annoying as it was the first few time. It's just getting into a rhythm. Having them in a separate file certainly helps, plus I found having them all at a standard distance/within a certain sized box helps, then i can drop guidelines so I can click the brush in the exact center easier each time.

    Just as a side note, I was all excited figuring I could use the scatter properties for the brushes to slap trees all over heck and back.

    Apparently the additional brush properties still use the positioning relative to the initial alt-click. So yeah, still gotta place everything one click at a time.

    I am not sure if I gave the proper credit but I used this technique for my Empire of Galladorn map with the brushes from Ramah's Vaniya map. Thanks a bunch for this!

    I am not sure if you mentioned this, but it might be helpful for some of the photoshop folks: You can actually define up to five different sources for your clone stamp, and switch between them by clicking the buttons in the brush menu rather than clicking back on the image. This is helpful if you don't want to have to keep the clone sources on the screen.

    and if you wanna go even faster - you can go to keyboard shortcut > palettes > clonetool and set shortcuts for them
    And remember, where you clone from doesn't have to be in the same image as where you clone too

    Do we have this in Gimp? I don't really understand that clone stamp thing, it's weird.
