Join Jan Kabili for an in-depth discussion in this video Sharing selections between images, part of Photoshop CS5: Selections in Depth.
When you're using the Save Selection command, you have the ability to save a…selection border from one image to another image.…That allows you to use an object that you select in one image as a sort of…outline for adding content to another image.…One of the reasons that you may not know about this feature is that you won't…even see this option at all unless you're working with images that are exactly…the same size and the same orientation.…So, when you don't have images that are similar in that way, you need a workaround.…That's what I'm going to show you here.…
I'd like to use a selection that I made around this car as an outline for a…graphic in this other image right here.…I'll go back to the car image, and I'm going to load the selection I originally made.…If you're working on your own images, you can make a selection around any item…in your source image.…I'll go to the Select menu.…I'll choose Load Selection.…In the Channel menu, I'll choose car, and I'll click OK.…Now I have the selection that I'd like to use in the dealer image.…
