Selection expand


Recommended Posts

I use Paint.NET for cut background from photos of Mask for this nice project: Masks

In photoshop i can use expand selection for cutting 1 pixel more then i just selected.

In Paint.Net i usualy skip this step and images has white/black thread around the mask.

Example: http://getmasquerademasks.com/masquerademasks.html#f=http://gyazo.com/f21796c7d1f93d9e2dd80e598aced3a3.png&m=red/18.png&lo=-13&to=-167&w=764&h=644

How to correct this problem, is there way to expand selection for 1-3 pixels ?

use the move selection tool(white arrow), grab the node/handle you need to expand(click and hold) then use the arrow keys to expand 1 pixel at a time

To shrink a selection, what I do is:

- I make the selection

- in a new layer, I fill the selection with a solid color

- then I feather the selection (use a plugin for this)

- then I use the magic wand selection to select the feathered object.

- then I play with the selection tool's Tolerance slider to make the selection bigger or smaller.

 

expanding is the same as shrinking the inverse selection.
