The lasso tool is the most versatile selection tool. It allows you to draw a free-form selection around the part of the image you want to select. All you need to do is click and drag the pointer to create your selection.

The magic wand tool is great for quickly selecting large areas of similar colors. All you need to do is click on the area you want to select and the tool will automatically select all connected pixels with the same color values.

Finally, the marquee tool is great for selecting geometric shapes. Simply click and drag to draw the shape you want. You can then adjust the selection’s shape, size, and rotation with the handles that appear around the selection.

No matter which selection tool you choose, once a selection is made you can then edit just the part of the image within the selection without affecting the rest of the picture.
