Scaling a rectangular marquee selection (CS2/CS3/CS4/CS5)

Added on Monday 9th of January 2012 08:45 am EST
 

by Renée Dustman

Application:

Adobe Photoshop CS2/CS3/CS4/CS5

Operating Systems:

Macintosh, Microsoft Windows

 

There’s more to the Rectangular Marquee tool than meets the eye. Select it from the Tools panel, and then just click the appropriate button on the tool options bar to create a new selection, add to a selection, delete a selection, or intersect with another selection, as shown in Figure A. To smooth the edges of a selection, enter a pixel value in the Feather text box. Your only other option is to choose Normal, Fixed Size, or Fixed Aspect Ratio from the Style pop-up menu. Choose Normal to create a random selection, choose Fixed Size to create a selection of a specific size, or choose Fixed Aspect Ratio to create a selection that maintains its width-to-height proportions, regardless of size.
