In today’s session we will learn about selection tool
That where and how it is used
under this one more move tool is given
All these tools given here are selection tools.
First selection tool is a rectangular marquee tool.
Shortcut for this tool is M.
Now, here I selected rectangular marquee tool
how to use this tool, have a watch.
first of all, click from where you have to select
after clicking drag the mouse
the moment you drag it , then one square shape will come up
As much part you want to select, select that much and release the mouse point over there
As you will release the mouse, that much part will be selected.
From where you have to start selection, first of all you have to got there and make a click
after clicking, you have to drag it from there and release the click till part you want to select
As you release the click that part will be selected
after getting selected , here is one tool
This tool will appear automatically and from that tool you can move the selected area.
You have to remember one thing: you don't have move this with help of move tool
because the Move tool will cut the selection,it won't make it move.
Regarding the selection, here are some options given on the upper part
in which first option is called new selection
what we just did here is new selection
and next to that there is a second selection tool, which we will call as add selection
with help of add selection
whatever you have selected and if you want to add something in that
so then it is used.
As per example, this much part that we have selected,
I have to add the bottom part to it
so , how will we do this?
the part you want to add , that part you have to select like this
now see , the bottom part is added in selection
Now if you want to undo that, use ctrl+alt+Z.
the Ctrl+alt+Z means step backward
means in photoshop , you have to keep undoing , then you have to keep step backward
because here you can do the undo , you can do the ctrl + z
but in photoshop only once you can do the ctrl + z
That's why if you want to go back more than once, then you have to do step backward .
Similarly there is an step forward
For which Shortcut key is shift+ctrl+Z.
Similarly, if you want to forward your steps
so you have to go in edit and do the step forward.
In this way, There are also different selection tools.
Such as ,after that one more tool comes that is
Elliptical marquee tool, means that rectangular tool used to select in rectangular shape but elliptical tool will select in round.
for example , here i have done the selection
this will select the part in a circle and if we cut this from the move tool then it will get cut in a round shape.
We will do ctrl+D and unlock the background.
similarly there is one more selection tool: single row marquee tool
means if you want a selection of a small line then you can use this tool.
Overall this is used to delete small lines or to make patterns
like here deleting the selected part, i am moving ahead
you'll see , I am zooming it here
then this amount of part is getting deleted
you press the delete key and can delete any selection
i have deleted one more
And deleted one more part
now pressing ctrl + D , we will deselect it
now selection is gone
If you want to delete any selected area, directly from your keyboard, then have to press delete.
There are more options of deleting as well
which we will see ahead.
for now i will show you one more thing
That is a single column marquee tool.
like there is a single row marquee tool, the same here is a single column marquee tool.
Same selection is made but in this it will get selected vertically, like this
This is called single row marquee tool
I will do ctrl D and deselect
One more thing, you saw 2 mins back that I have zoomed this page
So how to do zoom in zoom out, in photoshop, i will teach you that
There are many different ways to do zoom in and zoom out
Firstly, on keyboard press alt and with the help of scroll wheel , we can zoom in or zoom out, first
Second, you can ctrl+ or press ctrl-
Third one, inside the windows there is a pallet given, which we'll call navigator
in navigator, you can see there is a red color border
as you can see there is 50% zoom , like this you can zoom into this
even you can hold and do the zoom in or zoom out.
you have zoomed this much part
If you want to see the bottom part
Go there Can you see this hand tool ?
you can move this red border with help of hand tool
then you will be able to see the other part
like this you can zoom in or zoom out
click on this arrow and your pallet will be closed.
