Selection- subtract

Recommended Posts

I guess I am not knowing how to use the tool.  When I have already cropped the rectangle that has the selection I mostly want.  Now I thought that this mode would help me take off the crop could not.  I really would like to outline the part of the picture I want in its entirety.  For example there is a picture of a football getting ready to throw the ball.  I have already shrunk the picture enough edge to edge.  Now I would like to take out some of the back ground so I can just see the player and not the stands.  Can someone help me with this?

Hello and welcome to the forum.  There is one more step you need to do - after you select the part of the image you want to keep, then press Ctrl + I (to invert the selection) and then hit delete on your computer.
