Chapter 2. Selection Primer > Polygonal Lasso Tool

Polygonal Lasso Tool

You can use the Polygonal Lasso tool whenever you need to make a selection that consists mainly of straight lines. Using this tool, you just click multiple areas of the image, and Photoshop connects the dots for you (Figure 2.29). If you need to create a freeform selection, hold down Option (Mac) or Alt (Windows) and drag. To finish a selection, you can either click where the selection began or double-click anywhere, which will create a straight line between where you double-clicked and where the selection started.
