Lasso Tools

 Lasso tools allow you custom surround
  any area. Give you a rough outline of the
  area.
 You can then use the quick mask tool to
  refine your selection.

Quick Select Tools

  Quick Select tools try to find the edges of
   objects. Once you have selected an
   object you can:
    Hold the Shift key down and add to the
     selection
    Hold the Alt key down and subtract from the
     selection

     façade-ps0503)
Magic Wand Tool

  The magic wand tool works like the
   magic eraser. It works by selecting a
   consistently colored area (e.g. a sky).
    You set the tolerance for the changes in
     color.
  Note: You can invert the selection (select
   everything except the sky) by clicking
   Select > Inverse

Pen Tools
 Pen tools are the most accurate of the tools
  but also can take the most time.
 Connect the points around the figure you
  want to select.
 Once you have defined your path, click on
  the “Load path as a selection” button


 If you don’t have the path panel, click on
  Window > Paths

  picture.

    situation
Rest of today

  animal/person/car/etc. on the web.

  either to the farm picture from yesterday
  or the penguin picture (ps0505) from
  today. You can use any of the tools to
  select the image. Be as precise as
  possible.
