Photoshop Tip - Magnetic Lasso Tool

One of the most valuable tools I have found up to this point is the "Magnetic Lasso Tool" which is one of the choices if you hold down on the third box from the top (grouped with "Lasso Tool" and "Polygonal Lasso Tool"). I found it valuable in selecting items which are not straight lines because it helps recognize differences in the picture which help you select different, odd shapes without having to literally TRACE out the whole shape with your mouse.

Give it a shot...if you like it, good...if you hate it, then bad tip (for you)...
