  • How do you adjust a selection?

    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.

    Use quick mask and paint away the area you don't want selected.

        Or you might hold the "Alt" key while selecting the area you don't want to select, this will subtract.

          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...

          undo feather selection pet peave
          by AdamZx3
          I have a real pet peave with using the lasso tools and after you make a great selection and delete you find that feather was set to 0, and if you undo and hit 0 for feather the current selection still has a 3px feather...grrr. Is there anyway to reset the feather to 0 without re-selecting???

          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...

          Forgive me if this is the wrong forum but it looked the closest. I'm using Photoshop 6. I have found how to get the feather facility and the need to put in the number of pixels you want to affected.
