Understanding the selection process
on Mar 4, 2008 at 11:18:04 pm

I've had Photoshop since version 6 but I've never completely understood the selection processes so I'm trying to wrap my rather dense noggin around them now.

When I make a selection with the pen or any of the marquis tools, if I do a Layer via Cut process, with 0.0 pixel feathering, I get a 1 pixel line that appears around the new layer in my image. Anti-aliasing toggled on or off, doesn't matter, I still get that 1 pixel line.

Is this supposed to happen? This is why I've always used the layer via copy command. I'm sure it's user error on my part.

Thanks.

Try using Select> Modify > Contract

Thank you, Richard.

I think what it's always been is not only my lack of motivation to really investigate this phenomenon but also a display anomaly as this line is not in a print of an image nor is it present in any sort of video application. It appears at various scaling percentages in the work space. I guess nothing is wrong.

Your path is still active. Go to the paths palette and click anywhere inside the dialog box, away from the path to deactivate it.

Sir, i cant understand why after selecting all the imag, the modify button would allow the border tools only to be used. Others is not highlighted.
