Learn how to section a photograph using the selection tools that chapter one covers.
- [Instructor] Before we can turn this photo into this,…we need to break up the image…in a bunch of different sections…so that we can apply the fabric properly.…And we need to break it up in sections that align…with the pattern pieces of the garment.…So I've already selected the entire dress,…and I saved my selection so we can load it.…And it's called Full Dress, click OK.…And now you can see my marching ants,…the entire dress is selected.…I need to copy this to a new layer.…And the easiest way to do that…is to use the shortcut Command or Control + J…to jump it to a new layer.…
And I'll turn off the background layer…so you can see what we've done.…And now I need to select…and separate the rest of the pieces.…But it's a little bit easier to do,…because I don't have to worry…about making this outer selection now.…I can just make inner piece selections.…So I'm gonna start with the sleeve.…You can use the selection tool of choice…and go ahead and start selecting the different pieces…and cutting and pasting them onto new layers.…
