Selecting items with the Polygon tool

In the last video, we looked at the Lasso tool, which is a freehand tool for making selections. And depending on the object you're trying to lasso with it, it can be the perfect tool, but sometimes it starts to get a little touchy. And just by way of introduction, I will use the Lasso tool quickly and just make an obvious mistake here. If I'm drawing with this and all of a sudden I let up, see what happened, it always will auto-complete. And so, that could be frustrating to people. A lot of people will go back and like oh Command+D or Ctrl+D, I have got to start over again.

Well, actually, oops! There I made a mistake, I didn't want. Actually, if that happens when you're in the Lasso tool and you get that, you don't have to restart. Just remember, you can hold down the Shift key, and I could continue on my way. So even when this isn't necessarily the best tool to do this, you do have the option of just adding to the selection, so that you do grow it into what you want....
