    Magic Wand or Quick Select tool. Hold shift while selecting to add multiple colour regions. Set a tolerance of about 20, antialias on, contiguous on.

        I've tried this kind of thing before, and always found that pathing the spokes, then use that as a basis for a mask/selection is only way I could get satisfactory results.
        --shift studio.

          What shift said. Easy to do and you can feather the edge (after creating the shape) to suit the image quality.

            I would do the same. All I would add is that you can probably get away with basically straight line segments or close to it with broken tangents. Option/alt click on the points to break tangents as necessary.

              Fourth vote for pen tool and feather selections. Any auto selection is going to fall apart on those spoke highlights.

                  Quick mask.

                  Select what you need, not what you don't need. It's usually (and I do mean usually, there's exceptions to this rule) faster.

                  Set your brush to 100% flow and Opacity and quite a hard edge, then for the bigger selections you can fill them with the paint bucket (set the tolerance to 250 and voila, no edges!) so you just need to draw the outline of the selection.

                  Takes like 2 minutes. Works great for a lot of stuff.

                    Adjust the the contrast (to make a selection), then apply that to the image.

                      It would make the reflections even worse. I could definitely see quick mask, but with something that straight, pen tool tends to be the easiest. I use quick mask if I'm going to feather more or if the variations are regular enough that pathing it becomes irritating.

                        It's pointless to use any automatic masking functions when they require further 'hand' refinement. Better to bite the bullet and do it right first time! Nothing screws a job up worse than crap masking.

                          6th vote for pen tool. The tire has a curve and paths create the smoothest curves. Using a brush and quick mask will also work, but it will take more effort to create the same smooth arc.

                            That's what I was thinking. I mean I like quick mask with something wavy where the pen tool might require too many points and where I would have to be careful to avoid kinks due to overlapping handles. Otherwise I prefer the pen tool. You just need a sense where to place your points.

                              honestly this would seem faster masking it out through channels. At least to me thats how it would work out best. then using curves, u can make a very quick selection w/o ever using the pen tool. Sorry for replying late but just wanted to give my input on it.

                                How do you adjust a free selection that has picked something that you didn't want in the selection? I am trying to select a face and the tool added some hair I didn't want.

                                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...

                                When a selection has been made with the rectangular marquee tool, is there any way to fine tune it to the required selection?

                                I am being taught that, in quick select, I can expand or contract a selected area
                                by using a paint brush. Pick white and I expand a selected area, pick black and I subtract from it. Very useful for primping selections, particularly rough ideas selected with a lasso tool. Problem is, when I picked...

                                I am trying Paintshop pro X and CS2 right now, and I can't find the kind of selection brush that Photoshop Elements has. All I see is the lasso tool and the magic wand. Am I missing something? (I know that there is also that magic selection thing, but that's not the straightforward selection brush I...
