Se­lec­tion tools

ImagineFX - - Photoshop Quick Fixes -

Pho­to­shop of­fers sev­eral ways for you to se­lect parts of an im­age, all of which can be found in the Tools win­dow. The Rec­tan­gu­lar and El­lip­ti­cal Mar­quee tools are on the top left: just right-click the icon to re­veal ev­ery op­tion. Once a tool is se­lected, drag­ging the cur­sor in an area will cre­ate a – sur­prise! – rec­tan­gu­lar or el­lip­ti­cal se­lec­tion. Now you can only paint or erase in that par­tic­u­lar place. The Lasso tool and its ex­tra op­tions can se­lect more spe­cific ar­eas. Polyg­o­nal Lasso gives you con­trol over the bor­ders by cre­at­ing con­nect­ing points, while the Mag­netic Lasso at­taches it­self to what­ever shaped edges are clos­est as you drag the cur­sor around the can­vas.
