Drunk Lasso Tool


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.


yes it is quite loaded…



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!
