Tips & Tutorials #2

Selecting and Deselecting Items in PSE

One of our early frustrations when learning Photoshop was trying to get the "marching ants" selection box off of items that were selected. We were so grateful when we finally came across the answer that we thought we would share it here.

1. Deselecting Items - When you get the selection box (marching ants) around an item on your page and want to get rid of it hold CTRL and hit D and the box will disappear.

2. Selecting Items - When you want to select an item on the page (put the marching ants around it) hold down the CTRL key and click on that layer over on the side in the Layers Palette.

Hope you find this useful!
