Selecting in a png file

Recommended Posts

I always wondered if there was an easier way of selecting an object in a png file. Now I just use the Magic wand but I wondered if there was a way where you could do it in one time. 

I'm not talking about an extra layer because I know that trick but I just only need the selected part and not the object itself.

Thanks for replying :)

Without layers you need to separate the target element from the background. In most cases the magic wand is the most appropriate tool. The exception is where the element is a regular circle/ellipse, square/rectangle or a reasonably simple combination of these shapes.
