Lasso Tool In Adobe Photoshop

In this video, we will learn how & where does lasso tool use.

The Lasso tool is used for selections where there is no pre-defined shape. Unlike the Marquee Tool where you can select areas using circles and rectangles, the Lasso tool gives you more freedom in the shapes you select. To select the Lasso Tool press L key.

Polygonal lasso tool is based on point selection. In video, it is explained with the example that how you can select any object. The Polygonal Lasso Tool creates selections with straight edges.

Third tool is Magnetic lasso tool. The Magnetic Lasso Tool is an edge detection tool, meaning that it actively searches for the edge of the object as you're moving around it, then snaps the selection outline to the edge and clings to it like a magnet! You can select manually in between moving.


Lasso tools in Photoshop are used to cut out objects, such as hair, from the background. With these Lasso tools, you can use a variety of different shapes and modes to cut the desired object and then move it to a new location on the screen. Lasso tools can be found under the Select menu in Photoshop or by pressing the shortcut key ‘L'.

Lasso tools are used to select an area on a photo and designate it as the desired selection. The user will then be able to transform or edit this selection, such as cropping or moving it. Lasso tools also provide a less-obtrusive and more natural way of selecting an area than using a polygonal lasso tool.

There are a variety of Lasso tools that can be found in Photoshop. These tools allow you to select and edit the desired content on your screen with ease. For example, the polygonal lasso tool allows you to create custom selections and change the shape of the selection as needed.

Lasso is a tool that looks like a pencil and is used to select an area of the image. Photoshop has five different types of Lasso tools: Magnetic Lasso, Polygonal Lasso, Single Row/Column Marquee, Freehand Lasso and Quick Selection.

The Lasso Tool in Photoshop is an indispensable tool for many designers and artists. The Lasso Tool can be used to draw selections and control the flow of paintbrush strokes. It's such an important tool that it has its own panel in the Tools section.
