Hour 3. Selection Modes > The Selection Menu

The Selection Menu

You may have noticed that, in addition to the Selection tools you have just learned about, there's also a Selection menu, shown in Figure 3.8. Probably the most useful commands on the menu are the top four. Select All simply draws a Selection Marquee around the entire picture. Deselect removes the Selection Marquee from the image. Reselect replaces the Marquee if you have accidentally deselected something. Inverse lets you select everything but an object by selecting the object and then inverting. For instance, if I had a photo of a lemon on a plate, I could select the lemon and then choose Inverse to select the plate. Inverting is extremely useful, and you'll soon discover that it's one of your favorite tools.
