I could also choose to invert the selection. …For example, if I wanted to create the selection for the Eiffel Tower, not of …the sky. But in this case, I do want to select the …sky, so choosing Sky from the pop-up, all I have to do is click OK. …And as you can see, my selection is now loaded, and ready to use. …
