Join Tim Grey for an in-depth discussion in this video The Lasso tool, part of Photoshop: Selections (2011).

But it's perfect for cleaning up a selection. …In this lesson, I'll show you exactly what I mean. …To get started, we'll want to choose the Lasso tool. …So, I'll go to the toolbox, and click the button for the Lasso tool.…

Subtract from an existing selection or …intersect with an existing selection.
