How to adjust a marque selection?

Let's say you select an area with the marque and it's just a hair too big. Is there any way to adjust that selection numenically or through a command?

Tanks!

what i do...

What I do is I go to Select, then Modify then Contract.

Pick 1 pixel or so and it will make your circle 1 pixel smaller. It also has Expand and a couple other things you can use.

Hope this helps!

Thank you both for your replys!

pixelassassin - I have found the "modify selection" fuction to be highly inaccurate. It probably works OK on 1 pixel but anything larger doesn't hold a tight line.

tchook - I am using V7 and can't seem to locate the "parameter" menu. Sounds good though, any other ideas where it may be?

I guess I was hoping there would be a way to modify it like you can with the crop tool. Some handles on the sides would be great! Oh well. I guess it is back to hacking and choping my way with ye ol' shift and alt

Thanks y'all!
