"Photoshop Elements"


US
          

I have PSE 10.

In selecting an object for copy/move/etc, occasionally, my hand isn't as smooth and steady as needed, and a slection point anchors away from the edge. I know there is a way to "nudge" that line closer to the edge, but random actions and the help screens haven't found it.

Any suggestions?

Are you perhaps looking for the "snap to" option? It's under "View" in PS.

Will try. Thanx.

BTW. Is there a PSE area in the Nikonians forum?

Look under "Master Your Tools", "Adobe Postprocessing Software".

FOUND THE ANSWER!

The mistake I was making with the magic lasso was dragging. Oh, what a relief.

I hope learning the rest of PSE goes better!

I tend to use Magic Wand for selection. I think the lasso tool is hard to use.

When using the Magic Wand tool, there are choices for NEW SELECTION, ADD, and SUBTRACT. If you select more than you want, simply subtract the unwanted portion.

The Lasso Tool also has these same choices. Hope this is helpful.

Yes, like Laverne said, try the magic wand, I use the "quick selection tool." You can add or subtract to your selection, then once you have the basic selection, go to tool options and open that up, click on refine edge, select view in black and white, check the smart radius box, and move the slider for radius up to 250 . . . You'll be amazed at how much detail can be selected, even thin whisps of hair on a person. You should slide it back down to somewhere between 10 and 20, that's ideal for most selections. You can have PSE re-think problem areas by changing view to overlay and by using the refine radius tool (brush icon) and brushing problem areas that weren't quite selected. Once your happy with it check the box to decontaminate colors and set amount to 75% and choose how you want your selection's output (new layer, etc.) I learned this from the book I highly recommend "The photoshop elements book 11 for digital photographers" by Scott Kelby & Matt Kloskowski.
