Join Chad Chelius for an in-depth discussion in this video Selection tool techniques, part of Time-Saving Tips Using Photoshop.
- In this video I just wanted to show you … a few of my favorite tips when I need to draw … basic selections. … And as basic as this is, … So I'm going to basically repeat the process … that I performed in the previous video … and what I'm going to do is grab the rectangular marquee … one more time. … that I want to show you is that I'm going to … click and drag with the mouse … keeping the mouse held down. … And so what I can do is, … I'm going to hold down the space on my keyboard … Okay, now when I let go of the space bar … I can continue dragging with the mouse. … I can also hold down the alt-key … Now this is a little bit of Photoshop twister, … and I understand that … or your going to hate it. … And now I can let go, and I have the rectangle that I need. … and once again I would rotate it about fifteen degrees … let's go ahead and create a new layer. … And we'll go ahead and stroke this. … let's saturate that a bit...looks pretty good. … Go ahead and click okay and now I have my rectangle. …
