Chapter 4. Mastering the Art of Selection > Selecting by Color Range

Selecting by Color Range

Photoshop makes selection easy by giving you ways to draw selection borders in any shape, size, or form. However, selection is more than dragging your mouse across the screen to create a selection. In addition to standard drawing tools, Photoshop lets you select image information based on color. Maybe it's that bring red car in your background, or the white stucco finish adorning an adobe house, it doesn't matter because Photoshop lets you choose the color and select the maximum range. When you work with the Color Range option, the image displayed in the dialog box becomes a mix of black and white. The white areas represent the selected portions of the image, while the black areas represent the masked portions of the image.
