Chapter 6. Using Paint Tools > Selecting and Moving Images

Selecting and Moving Images

When you edit an image, selection is almost always the first step of the operation: First you select the area you want to operate on, and then you do something to it (for example, move it to another region of the Paint window, cut or copy it, or change its dimensions).
