How to adjust the selection area?


Recommended Posts

I am using the "Rectangle Select" tool to select a part of my image. But then I need to adjust the selection a bit, to select a bit more or a bit less.

The problem is that I can't drag the edges of the selected area, whenever I click them, I start selecting a new area.

 

Is it possible to modify the size of the selected area once you selected an area?

You must use the Move Selection tool :MoveSelectionTool:, then you can resize the area you have selected.

 

Also, make sure you have the selection box set back to Replace in the top tool bar.
