Join Tim Grey for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding, subtracting, and intersecting, part of Photoshop: Selections (2011).
It seems only natural that you would want to create a selection in a single step …whenever possible. But even with the very best selection …techniques, you'll likely find that it is necessary to perform some cleanup of an …initial selection. That involves adding to an existing …selection, subtracting from that initial selection, or creating a selection, that …is the intersection of two selections. In this lesson, I'll show you how these …operations work, to enable you to fine-tune a selection. …Here I'm just working with a sample image that's actually been faded back from an …actual photographic image so that you can see the selection just a little bit better.…
In other words, I'm not going to create a real selection here, I just wanted you to …have something more interesting to look at than a blank canvas. …I'll choose the Rectangular Marquee tool in this case. …Not for any particular reason other than that it's a simple selection tool. …I'll then click and drag to draw a basic selection. …
