You can use the magnetic lasso tool to simply freehand around an object and have it selected tightly with the use of the magnetic lasso tool. This works pretty neat, go ahead and click on the third tool, your lasso tool and you’re going to want to click the last selection which is your magnetic lasso tool. You will see you have your lasso tool with a little magnet.
So go ahead and you can click to put down your first fastening point and you can go ahead and release your mouse and go around the object, and how this works is, it’s using the colors to tell where the separation of the images are. And I’m not clicking at all, I’m just going to go ahead and going along. And if it ever gets confused, you can go ahead and click down and that will refasten it and kind of get it back on track for you, but I’m just simply moving my mouse along. The slower you go the more precise it’s going to be able to get it, the quicker. It’s going to still select it but it might be a little often points.
You can hold down your alt key if it anytime you want to draw a straight line and I’m just going to keep on going and you can go all the way back at the beginning and you can click on that first point to join the selection or you can simply if you decide you want end it, you can simply double-click on the last fastening point and its going to go ahead and make that selection.
