Working with Selections

You create selections when you want to isolate specific areas of an image either to silhouette, color correct, or apply a special effect to that particular area. Anything within the confines of an active selection, often referred to as the “marching ants,” can be manipulated without affecting the area outside of the selection. This chapter will guide you in choosing the correct selection tool to use for the task at hand, as well as provide you with a few tips the pros use in making selections. You can practice with many of the images in this chapter by downloading them from the www.photoshopcrafts.com Web site.
