Join Daniel Lieske for an in-depth discussion in this video Marquee tool, part of Drawing and Painting in Photoshop - The Great Training.
- So far, we have accepted the fact that our…paint is always applied to the whole canvas.…That's okay with a brush tool,…but if we're using the paint bucket, for example,…we only have the option to fill the whole canvas,…or nothing,…and that's a little bit limiting,…and wouldn't it be great to have a tool…that we could use to define an area…in which our paint is applied?…And, of course, such a tool exists.…
It's called the marquee selection tool,…and we can find it here in the Tool palette,…and it gives us this little pre-sized cursor…and with it we can drag a selection.…And now, every tool that we're using,…for example, the brush tool,…will only affect the area…that is defined by this selection.…Also, if we are using the paint bucket,…this will now only fill the selected area,…and the same is true, of course,…for the gradient tool.…
Let's just have a look.…So, we can use the marquee selection tool…to make sure that paint…only goes into the desired areas,…and we are not limited to only use…one rectangular selection.…
