Lose Edge Pixels with Cut and Paste
on Jan 7, 2010 at 10:31:55 pm

Hello There

I am having a little trouble with cut and paste and photoshop...and I have to imagine that I am missing something obvious. Hopefully someone out thre might be able to help me out.

Quick breakdown of what I am doing: I have this photo of a building. I am trying to cut out the windows to paste onto another layer in order to reduce the opacity on just the windows.

The problem: Whenever I cut out one of the windows (using the polyganol lasso tool) I lose a pixel or so on the edge of where I make the cut. When I put the image of the window back onto the building, there is a little 1-pixel outline between the cutout window and the building.

Surely, there must be a way around this, no?

Also is it all possible to paste it on the new layer in the exact same spot it came from in the previous layer?

Thank you very much for any help you may be able to offer. It is much appreciated.

Thanks,
John

To copy your selection onto a new layer:

Make your selection,
go the the menu bar and choose SELECTION
Save the selection
go the the menu bar and choose SELECTION
EDIT
INCREASE
select 1 pixel
press Ctrl J

Select the original layer, load the selection you saved before and press Ctrl X
