Different ways to select things in Adobe Photoshop
There are several different ways to select part of an image in Adobe Photoshop, in case you didn’t already know. I myself have come across 4 different ways to do so, and I prefer some ways over others. Let’s take a look on what I’m talking about: (I apologize if these images are a bit confusing, or “meta” looking; I was taking pictures of myself working in photoshop, then working on those images in photoshop. Trippy)
1.) Basic Selection tool.
2.) Magic Wand tool:
3.) Magnetic Lasso tool:
Found above magic wand tool, and underneath the basic, free-form selecting lasso tool. You use this by selecting the edge of somethin in your image, then tracing the border around the selection you want. This will latch on to similar styles and colors as you move the cursor.
4.) Masking? I think it’s called? You press Q is all I know:
Hopefully you didn’t know this already and this will help you in the future of photoshopping. Perhaps when you are making flash animations?
