        Sometimes I like to save my selection in case I feel like going back to it again later for some reason. You can do this by choosing 'Save Selection' from the Select menu and giving it a name. Then if you want to use it again simply choose 'Load Selection' and choose it from the dialog box. I'm not sure how many selections you can save per file.....I've never saved more than one I think.

            Polygon Lasso tool closes by itself
            by bestremera
            My polygon lasso tool closes by itself before I complete the selection. After I make several clicks, the screen blinks and the tool has closed the link at the last point. I'm pretty good with the pen tool but I still want my lasso to work when things just need something simple and easy.

            Selection Tool
            by T Paul
            You can use the selection tool to make copies of your selection quickly and easily. My standard practice for copying a selection is to select it then copy (Ctrl+C), paste (Ctrl+V). However, I just learned a neat little trick today.

            1. Open an image
            2. Pick a selection tool...

            magic lasso goes zooming!
            by kerriann85
            Help! When I use the magic lasso tool to select something in a photo and I get close to the edge of the picture, the tool takes off on it's own, zooming off into space toward the edge of the screen! Then I have to start all over. This is driving me nuts. Can anyone explain this and tell me how to keep...

            Elliptical Marquee Tool - Accuracy
            by jonk
            Hi Everyone!

            I am trying to use the Elliptical Marquee Tool to select an existing oval background. However, I am having problems trying to get it to line up correctly/evenly with the oval background. Is there a key press that would allow me to adjust the position and/or size once it's...

            Using Transform Selection Tool
            by Tony_Tea
            I'm sorry if this is a stupid question. What is the transform selection tool supposed to do? When I try to use it I do the following (PSE6 with PSE6 tools).
            1) Load image
            2) Make a selection
            3) Click on the transform select icon in the Effects menu
            4) Rotate, resize or whatever...
