Join Tim Grey for an in-depth discussion in this video Saving a selection, part of Photoshop: Selections (2011).
Sometimes creating a selection is simple, and sometimes it can be a bit of a …challenge to produce an optimal selection. …In either case, it can often be helpful to save a selection so you can get back …to it later. My general rule of thumb is to save any …selection that takes more than a few minutes to create. …In this lesson I'll show you how it's done. …I'll start off by creating a selection. In this case just a selection of the sky, …so I'll choose the Quick Selection tool and I'll drag to define the selection and …maybe clean up the selection in a few spots here, and that looks to be pretty good.…
At this point I have a selection I'm happy with. …So I want to save this so I can put it to use later. …I'll choose Select > Save Selection, from the menu, which will bring up the Save …Selection dialog. It's possible to save a selection in a …document other then the current document, but in most cases, especially with …photographic images, that's a little bit silly. …So we'll save this in the current document. …
