    I’m very happy with the addition of the Smart Clone tool, and the direction that it is taking the PSP’s editing capabilities, but it would be nice to have the hardness and opacity adjustments that are found in the regular Clone tool.

      Hello Encarnacion,

      The SmartClone tool can be selected by either clicking the dropdown arrow next to the standard clone tool, or by pressing the “D” hotkey on your keyboard.
