How to use "Copy Pen"

Copy Pen” can be used to copy part of a photo or illustration to another place.

This tool is convenient to duplicate specific areas, restore photos, or erase unneeded areas.

Open Tool Select window and tap Special Pen.

Open the Special Pen window and select one of the three copy pens.


I chose the Copy Pen (Move) this time.

Move Copy Area to the place where you want to copy and adjust Thickness to change the size of the copy area. 

You can make copies by adjusting “Copy Zoom” and “Jitter Copy Angle” from the Settings as you like.
