In past versions of Photoshop, when using the Clone Stamp, you could change the opacity by hiting the 1 through 0 keys. This shortcut still works with other brush tools - Brush, Spot Healing, etc. But now, when using it with the Clone Stamp it changes the Flow and not the Opacity. Which really sucks. Any ideas how to change this, or if there will be an update fixing it?
Hi, I'm using CS6 (13.0.1) on OS X 10.6.8 and number keys correctly change Opacity of the CST. Shift plus number correctly changes Flow for me.
Maybe you just need to do a Reset Tool from the right-click menu of the left-end of the Options bar when CST is active.
awesome, that fixed it. Thanks!!
really strange though, as i never purposely switched that shortcut.
You probably had the airbrush enabled in the clone stamp tool options.
With the airbrush enabled for painting tools the shortcuts for flow and opacity are switched.
