Lesson 5. Working with Selections > Selecting with the Magnetic Lasso tool

Selecting with the Magnetic Lasso tool

You can use the Magnetic Lasso tool to make freehand selections of areas with high-contrast edges. When you draw with the Magnetic Lasso tool, the border automatically snaps to the borders between areas of contrast. You can also control the selection path by occasionally clicking the mouse to place anchor points in the selection border.

You’ll now move the padlock to the center of the black oval you placed on the book cover earlier in this lesson, using the Magnetic Lasso tool to select the padlock.
