Hour 3. Selection Modes > The Selection Tools

The Selection Tools

There are several ways to select a piece of a picture. You can use any of the Selection tools: Marquee Tools, Lasso Tools, or the Magic Wand. You have different kinds of Selection tools because you sometimes need to make selections in a particular way, such as punching a shape out of an image or selecting all of the sky. Photoshop's Selection tools give you the power to select the whole picture or a single pixel. Just to refresh your memory, Figure 3.1 shows the Selection tools. (The pop-out menus have been shifted so that you can see what's on them.) In Photoshop 7, the tools are spelled out by name, rather than relying on the icons for identity.

Figure 3.1. The Selection tools are at the top of the toolbox.
