Before I show you the Refine Edge panel, I need to have a selection going and so I am going to use my favorite Selection tool, which I showed you in another movie, the Quick Selection tool here. I am going to go to the Options Bar and set it back to its default icon, which is the first one here, and then I am going to come in and just drag down the river with a very small brush, letting the tool select the river for me.

Then I will go back to the Options bar and I will click on the minus icon and I will come in and go over these small areas that the tool added to the selection and I really don't want them in here because I want only the river selected...
