Selecting Areas

The Dodge, Burn, Sharpen, and Blur tools make it possible to selectively modify parts of a photo. They don't, however, deliver the full power of the Editor, such as the ability to change color balance or increase shadow detail. A more general technique is to first select the area you want to affect; then any filter or other enhancement you use will apply only to the selected area.

Selecting an area is a prerequisite for more sophisticated photo manipulation, such as changing the background or creating a composite of several photos and making them look like one.
