Task: Drawing a Donut with the Marquee Tool

Start a new image.

1.
Select the Elliptical Marquee tool. Starting near the top left of the image, drag the crosshairs down and to the right, pressing the Shift key as you drag. This will give you a perfect circle. Make this circle whatever size you wish.

2.
Holding down the Option/Alt key, draw a smaller circle inside the first. You can also click the Subtract from Selection button and draw the inner circle if you like.

3.
Select the paint bucket tool, and pour paint into the area between the two circles.

4.
Press Command/Ctrl+D to deselect and chase away the marching ants. Enjoy your donut.
