Speaker Sketches: Oregon SCBWI Conference

Knowlege Knugget: Photoshop Lasso Tool

Quick tip o' the day: When you select the "Lasso" tool in Photoshop and then press the "Option" key BEFORE you start drawing you can make a selection that switches seamlessly between the Lasso tool and the Polygonal Lasso tool. For example, the grey selection on the right was made in one quick and easy stroke. Give it a try.

Disclaimer: If this is a new feature for you and increases your productivity ever-so-slightly -- you're welcome! Enjoy!
If, on the other hand, this is old news to you and you've been doing this since B.C.S. (before Creative Suite) then -- why did you keep this to yourself? Wassup' with that?! Share the knowledge and help a pixel pusher out!
