How to switch between all the Lasso tools
No one said that if you choose one type of Lasso that you need to remain in that one. While sometimes freehand lasso is better, you may want to switch to Polygonal for the straight lines or do a Magnetic in order for the tool to self-detect the edges. Here’s a good trick how to switch in-between all these tools
- Switch to the Lasso tool by holding down Alt while dragging
- Switch to the Polygonal Lasso tool by holding down Alt and do a left-click
- Don’t forget that you can erase any unwanted lines or lasso by clicking on the Delete key and going back on the points or lines along the edges. This will reverse the most recent actions.
