But when you need to clone elements in perspective, it can be quite challenging task as it requires careful attention to maintain proper proportions and alignment with the existing scene. Today, I will show you a very simple way to clone elements in perspective in Photoshop using only the Vanishing Point filter. This will allow you to seamlessly integrate new elements into your images while preserving the illusion of depth and realism.

Step 1

Open your image in Photoshop.

Click on one of the vertices that will become your plane. In this case, it will be the wall containing the artwork.

Step 6

Click 2 more times on the vertices that will make your plane. As you may see, now you have a perspective grid.

With the clone source set, move your cursor to any point (inside your plane) and simply click and drag to clone the artwork.

Step 10

If you want to make another copy, there is no need to select the clone reference point again, simply move your cursor to your desired location, and paint another copy.

Once you finish cloning, just click OK in the Vanishing Point window.
