View Full Version : Drunk Lasso Tool

12 December 2005, 02:51 AM
When drawing with the lasso tool, the resulting selection often seems sloppy, doesn't follow the drawn shape, generalizes or skips small or large sections. Like the lasso tool is a little woozy, or maybe just lazy. Anyone else notice this? Working with Painter IX, G5, OSX, loaded to the gills with RAM, etc.

Some Painter artists find they can make a better selection by first using the Pen tool to draw a precise line (closed Shape) around the area to be selected, then converting the Shape to a selection.

Shapes > Convert to Selection

Or, if you just want to edit the Lasso selection:

With the Lasso tool active, hold down the Shift key to add to the selection, or the Alt/Option key to subtract from the selection.

Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays, whichever fits!
