Photoshop Quick Selection Tool

Updated on December 7, 2015

Photoshop Quick Selection Tool

The ability to select an object in an image to either remove it from its background or isolate the object for specific correction/manipulation has certainly been available in earlier versions of Photoshop forever. The problem people seem to have has always been the quality of the selections. For instance, isolating and extracting flyaway hair on a model from a background is a bane for many if not most people. Some pixels invariably get left behind, background pixels travel with the hair or a combination of both.

Photoshop comes to the rescue by adding a truly powerful selection tool that gives the user incredible control over the quality of their selections. Called the Quick Selection Tool, it is found in the toolbar and has been coupled in a group with the Magic Wand. Adobe has recognized the strength of this tool over the wand, so much so that it has given the Quick Selection Tool top billing in the palette (the Magic Wand now resides in the fly out for the two tools).
