I have a mac and have just purchased Adobe Photoshop Elements 11.  Eveytime I use the clone tool I get this message - Could not use the clone stamp tool because the area to clone has not been defined (option-click to define a source point).  Why won't it clone for me????

    Have you option-clicked? Are you sure there's something in the layer you're clicking on?


    If yes to both of the above, click the little four-lined square at the upper right of the tool options and choose Reset Tool.
