Photoshop Tip of the Day

Tip #21. Once you have made a selection, you can add to it, subtract from it or even go back and forth, adding here, subtracting there. You can indicate if you are going to add or subtract by clicking on the pictures of shapes that are at the left on the Status Bar. The first one on the far left is create a New selection, the second is Add to selection, the third is Subtract from the selection and the fourth on the far right is the Intersection of two selections.

I don't use selections much, so I've never paid attention to the different aspects of the tool. I'll have to keep these tips in mind the next time I'm using the selection tool. Thanks!

How would you use these in Photoshop Elements.

Diana, I would give the keyboard shortcuts a try. But since I don't use Elements, I wouldn't know.
