Join Tim Grey for an in-depth discussion in this video The Elliptical Marquee tool, part of Photoshop CC Selections and Layer Masking Workshop.
The Elliptical Marquee tool, as the name implies, allows you to create selections…in your images that are based on ellipses. And that makes it possible to select round…or elliptical objects. Let's take a look at how this Selection…tool works. It's actually almost identical to the…Rectangular Marquee tool. The key difference, of course, is that the…resulting selection is elliptical in shape rather than rectangular in shape.…I'll get started by clicking and holding on the button for the Rectangular Marquee…tool on the toolbox. That will bring up the fly up menu where I…can chose the Elliptical Marquee tool. With that tool active I can now work…directly in the image in order to create elliptical selections.…
But, first, let's take a look at various options on the options bar.…At the top left, I'm going to set the option to create a new selection when I…click and drag. There are also options for add to…selection, subtract from selection or intersect with selection.…We'll take a look at those in just a moment.…
