Making selections in Adobe Photoshop Ep9/33 [Adobe Photoshop for Beginners]

Code Canyon


In this tutorial we are going to look at how to use one of the most common tools in Photoshop, the selection tools. As you begin to create in Photoshop, you will find that one of the most fundamental tools are the selection tools.

The selection tools allows you to make and control particular selections in your canvas area. The created selections work as a focus which will allow you to make a whole series of
creative decisions.


In this video tutorial I will be using Adobe Photoshop CC 2014 for mac. Almost all of the principles demonstrated and covered will apply to future and previous versions. Some differences may apply if you are using a previous or future version.

    You make the world better place to live. Capitalism runs only after profit – mankind cannot be a constant focus of getting out money. I love your socialism in sharing such good materials to push the world go forward and better. That is everyone deserves to be happy.
