Default Photo editor with clone tool?

I used to use Adobe Photo shop as my photo editor, but my old program won't work with the newer version of Windows and I don't want to buy yet another version of the program. I'm wondering if there is a free, online editor that anyone uses, that has a clone tool? I only want to do basic editing of my grandkid's drawing, to remove a stain in the middle of it. I can use an eraser tool in Paint, but can't match the color to blend the erased area with the rest of it.
Any ideas? Thanks so much!

If that doesn't work for you, GIMP is another free one that should work for you.

Another vote for GIMP, though initially I found it a steep learning curve and bought a book - back in the days of dial-up internet. But if you're used to Photoshop, they are very similar.

Photoshop Elements is fabulous...but not free. For the majority of people, it does most everything the full blown PS will do... I've been using it for years. It would be easy for you since you already know PS...

I had this happen to my Photoshop Elements on Mac the other year. My version was quite old. I sucked it up and bought the upgrade and wow, found out they "fixed" all the things that had bugged me all those years and made huge new changes that I love. If I wasn't forced into it I would have missed out on a better experience.

You can always look on EBay. That's how I got a copy of Microsoft Office that didn't require me to pay a yearly fee. It's a little older, but not bad...
But like others, I use Photoshop Elements. They are fairly affordable. Again, probably cheap on EBay.

Yes, you can clone colors in Paint, for I've done it many times. You use the little paint drop tool on the toolbar. Click on it, drag it to the area you want to copy the color of, click on that and the color you want will pop up in the color swatches at the top. Then scroll back up to the paint can above the paint drop tool, click on it and then scroll down to the area that you want to change the color of and click. You have to make sure though that if the color isn't closed in, the whole screen will change to the new color and then you'll have to remove it with the back arrow.
I've also have written a post on my blog to get colors close to marker colors in Paint = Craftin' Bliss: Digital Color Formulas (thefrugalcraftyrushdlady.blogspot.com)

I have a Master's Degree in Instructional Technology, and I find Gimp is too difficult for most of my teachers and while I for some good results with some of my projects, I grew up on Microsoft - and have a working knowledge of Apple OS - and I found the learning curve a bit steep. I hate to think of a person with less expertise than I, trying to master it!

Just had to say thank you again. I tried Photofiltre and it worked perfectly for my simple applications. Now, if I want to start editing photos of people etc, I will probably have to look further, but as I don't scrapbook anymore, I don't have as much need for lots of photo editing.

I don't think it's any steeper than Photoshop, which my DH did an in-person course in, and they're fairly similar in their capabilities. At the time I learned it, which was in the days of dial-up internet, it was easier to buy a book than use online tutorials, but nowadays there are plenty of those. I think it depends on how much of its (and Photoshop) capacity your want to use. My retired BIL spends hours and hours editing his photos with amazing results. I just about have time to adjust levels and crop.
