Tips on working with the Lasso tools in Photoshop
There are two sorts of Lasso tools the freehand and the polygonal which would go in straight lines. These are used to select a generally larger area for later editing. Here’s a few tips on working with it more effectively:
- If you want to draw a straight line you should click on where you want the segment to end. You can set further endpoints this way.
