The Magnetic Lasso tool

magnetic-lasso.jpg

The Magnetic Lasso tool is hidden under the Lasso tool. Select it, then trace along an edge. The path it draws snaps to the edge like a magnet. This tool is not very accurate unless the image is a very high contrast image, so experiment with it, for instance, on hard-edge brush strokes you’ve made or on elements in an image that show a strong contrast between its colors and the background.
