Photoshop :: Scribble Selection Tool In CS6Mar 22, 2012
Why is the scribble selection tool not in Photoshop CS6?
Why is the scribble selection tool not in Photoshop CS6?
This morning, my Selection Tool (the filled-in arrow) is acting like a Direct Selection Tool (the hollow arrow), but only when I click and drag on a group. It ends up select the anchors within the group rather than the whole group itself.
I've checked my preferences, quit and relaunched Illustrator a few times, and nothing seems to fix it. The problem briefly went away a few minutes ago, but came back when I quit and relaunched for good measure.
It's happening in Illustrator CS 5.1. I have CS6, and that version works fine, but I'm waiting on some plugins to be updated for it, so I'd like to use CS 5.1. I'm also running the latest Suitcase Fusion 4.
way to make outlines look like they were scribbled with a pencil. i created several objects in illustrator and imported them into psp. the have just black outlines and no fill color. any idea how i can achieve a scribble look?View 4 Replies View Related
I have been continually annoyed, when creating a vector mask-heavy document, with trying to select vector mask points by dragging a rectangle only to find that it instead selects a layer higher up which has a larger vector mask.
The only workaround is to manually select the points of my mask or to drag a rectangle from outside the canvas, meaning I have to zoom out or scroll to the edge - sometimes annoying if I am zoomed in quite far.
I know that the move tool can be set to automatically select a layer, depending on what part of the image is clicked, but why is there not an option to turn this off for vector editing?
If you look closely in the attached picture, there is a spot of light blue on the player's helmet, that looks like a mistake (think it should look like the grass behind it)...though it actually may be part of his helmet.
Regardless, I'd like to take it out. My idea was to select the blue with the quick selection tool, then bring that selection out to the grass, select the grass with that size/shape of selection, copy/paste and then bring the grass selection into the blue part so it looks like grass in what was the blue part.
The problem is I don't seem to be able to move the selection without taking the blue with it (so it's not an empty selection and therefore can't select a piece of the grass.)

Gimp v 2.8
Not sure when this started happening since the last time I used Gimp was about a week or so ago and everything was fine at that point... Now when I open these ".xcf" files I've been working on in Gimp I see this strange Blue Scribble that is showing in the same location for pretty much all the xcf files I opened.
I went through every layer in the "Layers" window and made each one NOT visible in an attempt to see if it was something on one of the layers, but it remained there even after ALL layers were no Longer visible. I also created a new xcf file, saved it, then re-opened it in Gimp and NO scribble was there...
If I export one of the files showing the Blue Scribble into any other format and then re-opened it in Gimp the Blue Scribble is gone too.
I have traced an image and expanded it. I'm now trying to add the scribble effect to it but it does not work. I assume it's because it's not an object but I'm new to illustrator so I'm not sure.
The image is here: [URL] ....
I basically want to add texture to the black eagle only.
When I use the square selection tool, the selection edges are rounded rather than square. I can't remember how to rset this.
How do you make the edges square by default?
I did something and I'm not sure what. But my selection tool has changed. Now when I try to alter the length of a clip in a timeline, it automatically switches to the rolling edit tool with the 2 arrows on either side of a line. If I try to just grab the end of a clip it also drags the end of the clip beside it as well. It affects inserts and almost anything I do. I can't figure out how to return my selection tool to normal.View 2 Replies View Related
In Indesign CS6 using Mountain Lion, the hand tool appears and I can't select or work with any other tool. All I can do is move the document around. After trying the space bar and other key commands I restarted and it worked for a while. Then it happened again. I work on a Macbook pro, so when I removed the mouse and worked only with the trackpad there was no change. When I quit and reopened, no change. I then deleted prefs and restarted and it worked, but it's been happening from time to time. Any other fix without restarting or deleting prefs.View 24 Replies View Related
I am trying to cut out a selection with my pen tool, I make cut out but it does not cut out what I wanted, instead a new layer is created when I try to make the cut out selection, What do I do so it cuts out what I want instead of making a new layerView 2 Replies View Related
Photoshop CS3 sees the addition of the quick selection tool. Designed to be semi-automated, it's designed to speed up the selecting process, especially good if you're in a hurry!
My question though, is just how good is it? Anybody mastered it yet? One of the things I'd like to see is a kind of sensitivity control, I know that would start to defeat the object of it being a 'quick' selection tool, but sometimes having the option of adding more control to a tool can drastically improve its useability.
I recently moved up from Photoshop Elements to CS5 which included a Selection Brush Tool in addition to the Quick Selection Brush. The Selection Brush Tool allows you to paint a selection free style without being bothered by the "Quick" feature that provides guesses about where you might want to select. I could not find the Selection Brush Tool in CS5. Is there one? The lasso is not as easy to use.View 3 Replies View Related
For some reason, all of my selection tools (like marquee tool) become invisible as soon as I let mouse 1 go. So I can't really see what I have selected, however I can modify my selection, cut it, transfor or do anything else I want..View 3 Replies View Related
I want to use the Burn and Dodge tools to create Shading and Highlights...However, I need a Rounded shape selection for the ... uhhh "grooves" between the prongs in order to dodge and burn precisely
To my dismay the Marquee tools don't have a Rounded Rectangle nor could I find a way to set the corner radius of the Marquee Rectangle..The Lasso doesn't allow me to create what I need and even if I could use it to make it just right I couldn't make it exactly the same three different times.

For some reason the tools in my photoshop are not showing up correctly on the cursor when they are selected. For example, normally when you click the brush tool, the cursor changes into a circle which shows you the size of your brush, but for some reason, all i am getting is a little " + "
Have i changed a setting somewhere? Does anybody know how i can get the cursor to go back to the way it should be. I just want it to be a circle when the brush is selected so i can see the size of my brush.
I'm trying to convert my barmitzvah album to jpeg so it can be displayed in a photo frame. To do this I've scanned each page at home and put them on CD because I have to go to the library to use Photoshop.
(before anyone says I violated copyright by scanning professional photos without permission 1) The photography studio no longer exists, 2) Photos were made prior to 1989 and do not have the required copyright information per this notice.)
Originally I was going to just scan each page and be done with it but due to the size of the pages and the scanners I have access to I would have to do two passes and stitch them together. When I tried doing that the subjects of the photos lined up but not the background so now I want to remove the background.
I had no problem with some pictures but the one is the first I've had an issue with. Using the Magic Extractor it takes out almost all of the background see this image which is left from the original.
I've tried using the oval tool to select the inner part but can't get it lined up correctly. Where should I be starting from?
