I looked into it further and opened #15 and clone tool works fine. The top right
pic is cropped and I can see the faint line of garbage it left from bad
cropping. #16 is the version that I used the scissors tool to delete this faint
line and this is when the dotted line rectangle appeared and it won't go away
even if I delete that layer. The dotted line rectangle for some reason prevents
the clone tool from working.
