Making Selections with the Magic Wand

The Magic Wand is, in many ways, the easiest of the selection tools to use. It selects by color, and can be set to select all pixels of a particular color or range of colors in the entire image, or only those pixels that qualify and are adjacent to each other. It's the perfect tool for tasks such as selecting the sky, prior to turning it from gray to blue, and for what I'm attempting in Figure 23.7, which is to select the big red tulip, without selecting the smaller one tucked in back, or any of the yellow ones.

Figure 23.7. Selecting the red tulip took about eight clicks, because there were many shades of pink included. Here, I'm almost done.
