Chapter 14. Advanced Masking > Using Extract to Make a Selection

Using Extract to Make a Selection

If you'd rather get a selection out of the Extract command, then Command-click (Mac) or Ctrl-click (Windows) on the layer thumbnail image in the Layers palette (after extracting it from its background), and choose Select > Save Selection. Next, choose Select > Deselect, and then View > History, and click in the indent to the left of the step listed before the Extract command (Figure 14.51). Finally, choose Edit > Fill and choose History from the Use pop-up menu. Now you should have the original image back, as well as a saved selection that you can retrieve at any time by choosing Select > Load Selection.

Figure 14.51. Click to the left of the step listed before the Extract command.
