Lesson 5. Working with Selections > About selecting and selection tools

About selecting and selection tools

Selecting and making changes to an area within an image in Photoshop is a two-step process. You first select the part of an image you want to change with one of the selection tools. Then, you can use another tool to make changes, such as moving the selected pixels to another locationor erasing pixels within the selection. You can make selections based on size, shape, and color, using four basic sets of tools—the marquee, lasso, Magic Wand, and pen tools. The selection process limits changes to within the selected area. Other areas are unaffected.

Note

In this lesson, you’ll use only the marquee tools, lasso tools, and Magic Wand tool to make your selections. You’ll learn about the pen tools in Lesson 10, “Vector Drawing Techniques.”
