Chapter 5.  Selecting Image Content  > Using the Lasso Tool

Using the Lasso Tool

Like the Marquee tool, the Lasso tool offers a few different techniques you can employ to make selections in an image. The Lasso tool’s variations enable you to make selections that are not typical or symmetrical in shape. You can select an irregular area by dragging (Lasso tool), select a polygon by clicking to place the angles (Polygonal Lasso tool), or get help selecting an irregular area (Magnetic Lasso tool).

Selecting an Odd Shape

You can use the Lasso tool to drag around selections that are irregular in shape, but don’t necessarily have a lot of angle points. (If the shape does have a lot of angles or corners, consider using the Polygonal Lasso tool, described next.)
