  • Photoshop Question - Magnetic Lasso Tool

    I was using Magnetic Lasso Tool to select a picture, but occasionaly my hand slipped a little to the side selecting the wrong area. Is it possible to return a step or two back, deleting the wrong selection, and continue further instead of having to start everything over again? Thanks for your help.

    If there is I would like to know too ...... I've always had to start over ... and why I work in small sections at a time.

      Hit the Delete key until you get back to where you were before your hand slipped.

        All you need to do is pass the path through any standard demagnetizer.

                Backspace goes back to the last point you made.

                    or you can finish and then use control or alt to remove or add to your selection?

                        I'm thinking backspace on the PC is the same as delete on the Mac. I always forget. I'm on a Mac, I have two delete keys, the one I used was in the same place (I believe) as the backspace key on the PC. Didn't try with the other delete key located to the right.

                        And yes, of course, Ned's solution is the simplest, provided you have one of those at hand.

                          I have a PC and used the delete button and it worked perfect .... I just tried the backspace and that works too

                          Pretty nifty tip

                            I think it's just a weird terminology/labeling thing Kat. Your backspace is in the same spot as my delete, then I have another one on a little keypad to the right, also labeled delete. I used the one in the backspace position.

                            Glad it worked for you.

                            As an aside, I've always had a big problem being proficient with the Magnetic Lasso tool, so I'm glad this question was raised, because I learned something new as well.

                              I'm really glad too Urstwile .... I rarely used it because of this very issue. It was just too much of a pain for me..... so now I will give it a go again

                                Thank you so much! And you were right, I actually didn't understand the question properly.

                                Most places would want you to have the bleed not on the artboard so when the ad is placed, only the ad shows, not all the bleed. If you have the bleed on the artboard, you risk having your art offset...
