Selection Commands

Photoshop's Select menu includes commands in five basic categories (see Figure 9.17). The commands All, Deselect, Reselect, and Inverse can be thought of as the “macro” commands—they work on a large scale. In contrast, the modification commands (Feather, Modify, Grow, and Similar) can be considered the “micro” commands—they fine-tune or adjust an existing selection.

Figure 9.17. Although this image shows no commands grayed out for illustrative purposes, not all commands are available at the same time. For example, the command Reselect is grayed out when there is an active selection, so it can't be available at the same time as Deselect.
