In this tutorial we are going to look at how to use one of the most common tools in Photoshop, the selection tools. As a creator in photoshop, you will find that one of the most fundamental tools are the selection tools.

The selection tools allows you to make and control particular selections in your canvas area. The created selections work as a focus which will allow you to make a whole series of creative decisions.

Enjoy.
