Selecting Pixels

Selecting pixels is the key to manipulating portions of images. Without selection, any adjustments, filters, or masks you apply would affect the entire image. Photoshop has many different selection tools for use in different situations. In this chapter you’ll learn how to choose the right tool for the job by using marquees and lassos, selecting by drawing, painting and by color, and finally, quick selecting and refining for the most efficient results.
