Making Selections

If you're editing photos that look just fine for the most part, often you want to change only certain parts of them. Photoshop offers a variety of tools to make selections — defined, editable areas within an image. When you make a selection in Photoshop, you can then edit only that part of the image, without changing the rest. Getting familiar with these capabilities — especially the editing of selections — is necessary if you want to edit your individual images with consistent quality. To keep that quality, the larger goal is to set up an image-editing workflow for your photos.

Selecting only certain parts of your images — and editing only those selected parts with tools covered in this chapter — gives you great creative control. You can replace a dull background with a vibrant color, darken a bright sky, brighten a dark sky, and selectively sharpen or blur a part of your image to get the desired effects.
