Hour 3. Making Selections > 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-up menus have been shifted so that you can see what's on them.) In the lower-right corner, you can also see the Slice tool, which is used for Web animation. You'll learn all about it in Hour 24, “Photoshop for the Web.”

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