Join Daniel Lieske for an in-depth discussion in this video Lasso tool, part of Drawing and Painting in Photoshop - The Great Training.
- Selections are really important…for our work on the digital cameras,…and we are not limited to…rectangular or elliptical selections.…There's another tool called the lasso selection tool.…And with the lasso tool, we can make…free form selections.…And this means that everything that we can draw…can end up to be a selection.…We just have to close the path here,…and we end up with a wonderful…blobby selection that we can use to paint now.…
"ctrl + d" clears our selection, and we can do another one.…And you can see that this…really is selection heaven,…cause we can just do anything that we can imagine.…And just like with the marquee tool,…we can switch through the different modes here,…so we can add to our lasso selection,…and we can substract from our lasso selection,…and we can select the…intersection of two selections.…
Now, there's a variation of the lasso selection tool,…and it's called the polygon lasso tool.…And this is just…a little bit more limited.…You're doing straight lines with the…polygonal lasso selection tool.…
