Magic Wand not working correctly?

  • toe_head2001 changed the title to Magic Wand not working correctly?

@Bapu, after you selecting with the Magic Wand, do not try to delete the background by hitting the backspace key on your keyboard; that just fills your selection with the primary colour, in your case black.

 

Follow this workflow:

- Select the background using the Magic Wand like you have already done.

- Delete the selection by pressing the Delete key on your keyboard.

- Use the Rectangle Select tool to select the object you want to move.

* Optional but recommended: Cut the object and paste it into a new layer (Ctrl+X, Ctrl+Shift+V).

- Use the Move tool to move the object to where you want it.
