Chapter 8. Working with Bitmaps > Modifying Selections Edges

Modifying Selections Edges

So far, the selections that we created have been relatively straightforward. A few techniques for modifying the edges of selections are good to know about. One of these techniques is called feathering.

Feathering

Feathering creates a somewhat see-through, or softened, effect along the edge of the pixels that you select. Setting the feather amount to various degrees increases and decreases the amount of softness, or feather, along the edge. Feathering can be set before a selection is made with a selection tool, or after a selection is already created with a selection tool.
