Lasso Tool accuracy?
Jan 11, 2014

Hi Guys,

Im new to PS, been making a few "action" sets for making my own borders, works a treat!

The other home made border is a beveled looking frame, if that makes sense, I achieve that tracing out with the Lasso Tool and then using the gradient tool for each side, I guess you all know that already, just listing my workflow

The problem I have is accurately tracing each side of the border with the Lasso Tool, I have many attempts before I can get it right, even then Im using a Wacom Tablet

Is it just a matter of practice? Or is there an easier way?

....Gary
