Chapter 1. Selection Secrets > A Compositor’s Best Friends

A Compositor’s Best Friends

When making selections, the Quick Selection tool and the newly enhanced Refine Edge dialog are going to become your best friends. I’ve demonstrated them in my classes since Photoshop CS5 came out and when people see the results, you can actually hear the oohs and aahs in the crowd. One of my favorite parts about them is that they’re really easy to use. The Quick Selection tool is basically a brush, so if you can use a brush, you can use it. And, Refine Edge has only a few settings that we really need to worry about. Trust me, you’ll have them mastered in no time and be well on your way to killer selections.
