In photoshop CS4, can I use the patch tool to cover light over dark?

Question by dvy_jones_locker: In photoshop CS4, can I use the patch tool to cover light over dark?
Im new to photoshop & I’m trying to cover-up a tattoo sleeve with skin from the other arm using the patch tool. Even with the opacity option set a 100% the tattoos show pretty much through. Should I use another tool instead?

Perhaps you could try the clone stamp tool. Hold Alt as you click on that patch of skin on the other arm to define the source, then release Alt and apply the clone stamp on the patch of skin with the tattoo.

The clone stamp tool looks like a stamp and is two items beneath the patch tool.

maybe you opened the original file, and changed the name of the one you were working on.

Why is the brush stroke not totally dark (Photoshop Elements)?

I use Photoshop Elements, and I haven’t changed anything that I know of, but for some reason, all of my brush strokes are semi-transparent. I have Opacity at 100% on everything and spacing at minimum. If I tap the left click to stroke it looks really transparent and when I move it seems to fade in. I’m using the same brush I’ve always used and it’s never done that.
