Some of My Favorite Selections

Given the task list for localized adjustments, you need to familiarize yourself with selection techniques. Selections should be quick and easy; most should take less than 60s to create. Users often try way too hard to create a very precise selection. Even with the basic selections tools this can be very frustrating. There are definitely times when a very precise selection is needed. But most often a fairly simple selection is all that's needed.

Here are some of my favorite selection techniques. They're not listed in any particular order of preference, but more in an order of how I like to teach them. Try them all out. I use my image from Valley of Fire in Nevada in these examples, it seems to have characteristics appropriate to most of these techniques.
