Last autumn I took a photo of a rotten apple on some grass, with a tiny flower beside it. I used the regular lasso tool to cut and layer the apple, and then the flower (giving 3 layers). Upon closer reinspection, though, my lasso cut is a little jagged. So, I'm here asking what you guys do to cut out objects!

I am a fan of the magnetic lasso tool, but find that it can often leave very jagged edges when the object isn't clear cut. So, I thought I would be best to resort to the regular lasso tool, just with the photo zoomed in a lot and going little by little. That would be fine, except that I often click too fast from one point to the next, and Photoshop thinks I'm finished and stops the lasso there. That is soo frustrating! Is there any way to go back and edit after Photoshop has 'closed' the lasso selection?
Another thing I sometimes use is the magic wand tool, but as my background is grass, there's no way that I can get it to do what I want. Any suggestions?
