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, copying, and pasting enable you to borrow from one picture to add to another. In the examples that follow, I'll take a flower from one part of the picture and add it to another. In Figure 3.14, I've selected the flower, and set the feather amount to three pixels to help it blend in when pasted. Next, I'll use the Copy command (Edit→Copy), Command+C (Mac), or Control+C (Windows) to copy the flower to the clipboard.
