factfile5.3 Selection Tools


poster One of the most useful image editing skills you will learn is how to select an area of your picture.

Serif PhotoPlus has a range of selection tools that you can use for different purposes. Some make regular selections like rectangles or ellipses, others select pixels of the same colour, but the most flexible tools allow you to select irregular areas such as figures.

The poster advertising a new release by Justin Timberlake is an example of this technique. Selections enable you to make changes to the selected area itself or to the surrounding area when inverted without affecting the rest of the image.

The practical tutorials that follow will teach you how to use these tools and what kind of effects you can achieve when you do.
