Standard Selection Tools
The standard selection tools in SmartMask are intended for creating geometric shapes and freeform selections. The selected area is marked by a dotted outline. You can move the selection outline in the image by placing the cursor inside the selected area and dragging it.
Rectangular Selection lets selecting rectangular and square areas. Drag over the area you want to select with the left mouse button.
Elliptical Selection lets selecting elliptical or circular areas.
Lasso allows creating freehand selections.
Draw a selection line around an object. When you release the left mouse button, the contour will be closed, the final point will be connected to the start one.
Polygonal Lasso lets creating a freehand selection from straight segments.
Move the cursor and left-click on each point, the program will automatically draw a straight line between two points. To close the contour bring the cursor to the first point or make a double-click in the final point.
Hold Shift to make a square or a circle and to draw a perfectly vertical/horizontal line.
The tools options will be shown in the Settings Panel and in a floating box when right-clicking on the image:
