FORM-BASED SELECTIONS

Form-based selections usually work well for smooth, organic objects that are not geometrically shaped. The primary tool I use for these tasks is the Pen tool, as explained in Chapter 4. However, many people find the Lasso tool very useful to make and refine form-based selections as described here.

The Standard Lasso Tool

The standard Lasso tool lets you select objects that are organically shaped (not geometric shapes, which are best selected with the Rectangular and Elliptical Marquee tools). On its most basic level, the standard Lasso is a very straightforward tool to use. Click and hold the mouse button and drag around the object you want to select. When you reach the starting point, let go of the mouse button and Photo shop will close the loop to complete the selection.
