Join Tim Grey for an in-depth discussion in this video Selecting the border of an existing selection, part of Photoshop CS6 Selections and Layer Masking Workshop.
There are many many ways to modify selection in Photoshop, some of them more …useful then others of course.

Mostly for creative effects but also in …some cases for fine tuning or correcting an image. …The technique is creating a selection of the boarder of a selection. …It sounds a bit odd but let me show you exactly how it works.…

So something along these lines that looks …to be just fine, so now I have a selection that contains most of the image …in the case in a rectangular shape. But again, the selection for this …technique could be of an shape you'd like. …
