Getting Elements to Help You Make Tricky Selections

If you’ve tried the Lasso tool for making selections, then you know two things: (1) It’s pretty useful, and (2) tracing right along the edge of the object you’re trying to select can be pretty tricky. But you can get help in the form of a tool called (are you ready for this?) the Magnetic Lasso tool! If the edges of the object you’re trying to select are fairly well defined, this tool will automatically snap to the edges (as if they’re magnetic), saving you time and frustration (well, it can save frustration if you know these tips).

Step One

Click-and-hold for a moment on the Lasso tool in the Toolbox, and a menu will pop out where you can choose the Magnetic Lasso tool.
