Chapter 5. Compositing in Photoshop CS >  Other Selection Tools

Other Selection Tools

There are other tools you can use to make selections within Photoshop. Here is a brief refresher for those tools, too.

Magic Wand

The Magic Wand, which you can activate by pressing the W key, selects all pixels that are similar in hue and value to the pixel you first clicked on. Originally, the Magic Wand would select only the pixels that touched each other (were contiguous), but now this capability is an option (albeit, the default).
