Photoshop Tool: Lasso Tool


PHOTOSOP_LASSO_TOOL

Lasso tools allow you to select certain areas of an image by tracing the selection outline. Like the Marquee tool, Lasso has different tools available as well:

According to mediacollege.com,

Lasso Tool

This is a freehand selection tool. Click and hold your left mouse button on the image and draw your selection.

Polygonal Lasso Tool

Similar to the lasso tool, except that instead of holding your mouse button down to draw, left-click on various points to create a selection with a series of straight edges.

You can also hold down the Alt key (Windows) or Option key (Mac OS) to draw freehand sections.

Magnetic Lasso Tool

This is a very handy tool for selecting areas which have reasonably well-defined edges. Left-click at the starting point of your selection and simply move the mouse along the edge.

“Fastening points” are automatically made at various points along the edges. Left-click at any time to add a fastening point manually.

To Complete a Selection

To finish drawing a selection, either click on the selection starting point or double-click anywhere.

Well, a lasso tool works somewhat like the marquee as well. It also creates a marquee to your image and you can use the move tool to move it. 🙂
