Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Final thoughts, part of Photoshop: Selections (2013).
…I hope you enjoyed this class, All About Selections.…Remember, taking the time to accurately choose the pixels…you want to work with is going to give you great results.…Throughout this course we took a look at several different techniques.…And the truth of the matter is, you'll develop…some of the ones that are your own favorites.…For example, I don't use the magic wand very much nor do I use the pendulum.…But that doesn't mean that those aren't the right selection tool some…of the time.…Nor does it mean that you shouldn't use the ones that work best for you.…
I try to present several different techniques,…ranging from beginner techniques to advanced techniques.…And sometimes you have to combine more than…one technique to get the results that you need.…Remember, it's all trial and error.…So be sure to revisit this course from time to…time and take a look at some of the movies.…You're going to want to rewatch them to really nail these techniques.…If your lynda.com membership includes it, be sure…to download the hands-on exercise files and practice.…
