30 Days of Photoshop: Day 8

Day 8 and more great ways to select stuff

After yesterday’s introduction to working with selections, today we dig a bit deeper and look at additional tools to help us:

  • Lasso Tool
  • Polygonal Lasso Tool
  • Magnetic Lasso Tool
  • Magic Wand
  • Quick Selection Tool

Some of these are good and some are pretty disappointing (if not total rubbish).

We’ll work through a range of examples with tips on what works and what doesn’t, as well as some work-arounds when selections don’t go according to plan.

And as always, there will be plenty of short-cut keys to speed up your work-flow.

This is one of the longest tutorials so far, lasting over 23 mins; so be sure to grab a pen to take notes.  You dont want to miss any of this.
