Clone tool in Gimp (Dresden has been spared)

Once upon a time, Matt Herbert spake thus:

:-)As others have pointed out the gimp has a rather "opaque" interface...
:-)But, once you get used to it, it is fast and even intuitive, just
:-)like vi :)
:-)To make the Clone feature work, you need to select the image region
:-)you want to clone.  You do that by holding down the Ctrl key and
:-)left clicking in the image.  A good idea is to make sure you have
:-)at least the "Tool Options" and "Brushes" dialog boxes open.
:-)You can open them by right clicking on the canvas, and following
:-)the "Dialogs" menu.  If the clone is copying too much or too little
:-)you may need to change your brush size.
:-)And remember, the Ctrl and Shift keys are your friend in the gimp!
