PostSubject: Photoshop Selection Tool Mon Jan 04, 2016 3:01 am


HOW TO:
USE THE PHOTOSHOP SELECTION TOOL
to measure your live layout areas




Tutorial Author: @Pantone // Category: Layouts
2014 Photoshop CC, 64-bit

STEP 1

With Photoshop up and your layout open, go to Window and activate the "Info" panel.



STEP 2

Using your magic wand tool, select the area in which you'd like to measure.


STEP 3

Up at the top, click "Select", then "Modify", then "Contract", AFTER you have an area selected.


STEP 4

Set the value to 5px, or what ever you desire. For this tutorial, I determined
that 5px would be enough around all of the edges to hold our text without it spilling over
the sides of the box.



STEP 5

To get the coordinates, use the Info Panel to read and copy the width and the height.


STEP 6

To find the Left and Top coordinates, you'll go up top and click "Edit", then "Free Transform".
Your live area box will change once "Free Transform" is activated.



STEP 7

Using the top left of your Photoshop window, use the defined X and Y coordinates,
(Left being "X" and Right being "Y") to further establish your live area coordinates. To determine
your correct left coordinate, click the furthermost left-center block, it will turn white when
clicked. Use what is in the "X" coordinate box.



STEP 8

To determine your correct left coordinate, click the furthermost top-center block, it will turn white when
clicked. Use what is in the "Y" coordinate box.



TUTORIAL
F.A.Q.

QUESTION: "Is this the same idea as the GIMP selection tool??"
Yes - though this way is a little more complicated than GIMP.


QUESTION: "I don't see the alignment tools?"
Go to Window and assure that your align tools are on.


QUESTION: "Does this work on the most updated Photoshop?"
Yes it does!
