Join Tim Grey for an in-depth discussion in this video Using Deselect, Reselect, and Hide, part of Photoshop Selections Workshop.
As much as you may be focused on creating selections, in a variety of situations …you'll actually need to deselect. In other words to clear an exiting selection. …And of course you need to bring that selection back or hide a selection from view. …We'll take a look at all of these options, in this lesson. …Instead of creating a selection from scratch in this case, I have saved a selection. …So, I'll go ahead and choose Select > Load selection from the menu. …From the Load selection dialog, I'll choose the water selection that I have …previously saved and click okay. This gives me a selection of the water in …this image. But then I suddenly realize that before I …apply an adjustment to just the water, in the interest of enhancing contrast for …example, I'd like to clean up some of the reflections that are little bit …bothersome to me. So I'm going to choose select deselect …from the menu in order to get rid of this selection.…
I'll then add a new layer, and I'll call that layer clean up. …
