In essence all cloning and adjustments in Lightroom creates layers. Why cannot these layers be selected individually, especially when they overlay each other? These layers should also be able to be transformed, erased and tonally adjusted to match better the surroundings like any layer in Photoshop. The facilities are already in other tools in Lightroom. Before anyone suggests that I use Photoshop; well I don't want to use Photoshop. The future is non destructive editing as in Lightroom, working on low resolution proxies and rendering as the last stage.
