Lesson 1. Bitmap Editing > Copying the Selection

Copying the Selection

The next step is to make another copy of the candy. There are several ways to make copies of your selection. You are probably familiar with the Copy and Paste commands on the Edit menu. You can use those commands, but there is a better method for controlling the placement of the copy.

1.
Select the Pointer tool from the Tools panel, hold down Alt (PC) or Option (Mac), and then drag the candy selection to a new location.

The pointer adds a plus sign, indicating that you are making a copy of the candy. Release the mouse when you are done.

2.
Save the file.
