Select a triangle/polygon


Recommended Posts

You mean instead of a rectangle selection tool, you would like a triangle selection tool?

That doesn't exist unfortunately (Unless I've been extremely oblivious for several years).

My best suggestion would be to use a magic wand on a triangle like area to give yourself a triangle shaped selection, then move it around to where you need it.

As a workaround, I add a new layer and use the line tool to draw a "selection" around the object, then use magic wand to select the area enclosed by my lines. Once I get my selection, I hide the line layer and return to my image layer with my selection.

Not a bad idea.

Would you suggest an aliased line then? So the antialiased part doesn't accidentally cut out parts of what you want? Or do you not have that issue

instead of the line tool use the Render-Polygone/Stars tool set to three Verticies and whatever size you need--this only works for an Isosceles triangle
