Yes, you might consider keeping Elements for very serious cloning 
situations.  Click on Photo, then look for *Edit In* you should see 
Photoshop Elements.  I know I said I hate Elements, and I still hold by 
that, but if I have to do serious cloning, I use Elements for that.  It's 
better than Lightroom. But Lightroom is good for quick spot removal and 
minor cloning.  I used to do more cloning than now.  I hate doing it, so I 
try to shoot so I don't have to.  Still, there might come a time when I'll 
have a big cloning job.  I still have Elements 5 installed on my computer.
