    excellent, was really easy to understand :D thank you so much!but one thing that i found was that i had to loop the selection while using both alt and shift keys. it was really helpful anyway, thanks again :)

    how do you make multiple selections in one photo with the regular lasso? Meaning I don’t just want to make one circle I want to make like six. I want to circle six eyes in one photo and make a layer.

  25. 1DarcsenOfLegend7 says:

    I finished lassoing it, but when I try copying it it says it couldn’t do it because nothing was selected! But when I right click on my pic, the only selecting options I have are “deselect” and “select inverse” (which selects the borders of the entire pic). Please help!
