Join Justin Seeley for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating selections by color, part of GIMP Essential Training (2012).
Now, we have already looked at the tool called the Fuzzy Select Tool, which allowed us to…make continuous selections based on certain criteria that we brushed over inside of our…document, like color, hue, saturation, and things like that,…but we also have access to a tool which allows us to select purely on the color in which…we are clicking on at any one time in our document,…and this is called me Select by Color Tool, which selects regions with "similar colors".…And so you can actually determine how similar the colors have to be inside of the tool options,…and you do that by adjusting something called the Threshold.…
So really what we want to do here is we want to basically generate a selection around this…lady who is on the green screen right now, and make her her own layer,…and we want to do that by quickly and easily removing the green from the background.…We have to be careful, though, because there are shades of green in her jacket, there's…also some green in the packages she's holding,…
