Using the Lasso Tool

The Lasso tool allows you to select a marquee by tracing its outline on the bitmap.

With the bitmap selected, from the Bitmap Edit toolbar:

  1. Select the Lasso tool.
  2. Click and drag the cursor over the bitmap to create a closed shape.

    To add and subtract areas from an existing marquee, hold Shift and Ctrl (command in Macintosh) while you drag. (A small + or - appears near the bottom of the cursor to indicate Add or Subtract.)

  3. Click inside the marquee and drag it to move it to the desired position.
