Chapter 11. Using the Paths Palette > Converting a Selection into a Path

Converting a Selection into a Path

Selection marquees are Photoshop's way of identifying the work areas within the active document. Since selections are created in the raster format, the accuracy of the selection is based on the resolution of the active image. This can be a problem when you're working with low-resolution images such as, Web and presentation graphics. However, when you convert a selection into a path, you can precisely reshape it, using Photoshop's vector tools, and this gives you more control over the final results.
