I have Cs2, this issue happens when I use my clone tool and I need to clean up some spots however the cross is so far away from the object I am working on its screwing it up making that color of where the cross is.. the area I am working on is very small..

I have tried searching for help to make this cross as close to the circle as possible but I am not sure on how to change that width.. Hope this makes sense LOL!

Hold the ALT key, left-click where you want the clone "source" to be, then release the ALT key, move and left click where you want to clone to.

Always look up what you want to do on YouTube. Chances are, you'll find a video of it.

The source is clicked right, but when I move the clone and click the area that I need to fix, that cross goes out side that area where I clicked the oringal source to be and then turns it that color following that pattern LOL

You can have the cross track your mouse movements or not. It's an option on the toolbar. I usually have it track over a few movements, then alt-click again, but leave the source fixed if the source area is too small.

Thanks George that is what I am looking for for the mouse not to follow movements

The setting for this is "non-aligned" vs "aligned" ... when you have the clone tool selected look under the "Options" palette ...
