Once you have made a selection that you are happy with, using any of the many…techniques that I covered in this course, take a second to save your…selection with the image.…That way you won't have to create the selection again if you want to reuse it in the future.…Here I have a shot of this sweet Tesla battery-powered car.…I'd like to isolate it from the people standing around looking at it so that I…can use this as a product shot.…I will create a selection of the car using any of the selection tools.…I am going to use the Quick Selection tool, using the same technique that I…showed you in an earlier movie about that tool.…
I will click in the image, and I will make a small selection, and then I…will hold the Option key, the Alt key on the PC, as I move my mouse all…around the car, and what I'm doing is training the tool as to what I don't want it to select.…I'd go all around the car that way and then come back into the car and click and…drag, and each time I click and drag I am adding to my selection.…
