Hour 3. Selection Modes > Cutting and Copying

Cutting and Copying

If you have cut or copied and pasted in any other application, you can do it in Photoshop. The commands are identical and so are the results. You'll find the Cut, Copy, and Paste commands on the Edit menu.

Cutting, or copying, and pasting allow you to "borrow" from one picture to add to another. In the examples that follow, I'll take a seagull from one picture and add it to another. In Figure 3.14, I've selected the bird and post, and set the feather amount to three pixels. Next, I'll use the Copy command (Edit, Copy), Command+C (on Macintoshes), or Control+C (on PCs) to copy the bird to the clipboard.
