NSL WEEK 200- Adobe Photoshop CC “Lasso Tool Basics”

200 weeks of NSL!

Check out the video above. I’m going over the basics of the Lasso Tool.


Adobe Photoshop CC
Lasso Tool draws free form selections

When I work with this tool, I usually use my Wacom IntuosPro. You can use your mouse, but since I’m able to draw free forms, I’d prefer to do it on a tablet.


Selections Modes

In the Options Bar, you can switch selection modes.

New Selection

Add to Selection

Subtract from Selection

Intersect with Selection


Adobe Photoshop Selections
Modifiers to edit selections

Image above shows the selection in action. I’m able to draw out irregular shapes very easy. Use you modifier keys to edit your selection.

Shift= Add to Selection
Option/Alt= Subtract from Selection
Option/Alt + Shift= Intersect with Selection
