Smoothing Out a Selection

One final piece of advice: soften your selections. There are two keys to achieving smoother edges:

Step 1. The first step is to smooth your selections (Select>Modify> Smooth). This rounds out hard corners in your selection.

Step 2. The second step is to feather the edges with Select> Feather or (X + e + © ( E + a + 3). This modification will produce a gradual edge. This is similar to the difference between a line drawn by a ballpoint pen and one by a felt-tip pen. In Mac OS X, the keyboard shortcut is used to show/hide the Dock (damn that Dock). You can remap Photoshop's default shortcut to an unused key combo. Adjust your feathering to get a soft transition between filtered and unfiltered areas.
