Adobe Photoshop has three types of lasso tool gives us a different way to draw selections. Of all the selection tools in Photoshop, the Lasso Tool is probably the easier to use and understand because you just drag a freehand selection around the object / area you want to make selection, in a similar way to how you would outline something like on a piece of paper with a pen / pencil. With the Lasso Tool selected, your mouse cursor will appear as a small lasso tool icon, and you simply click at the spot in the document where you want to begin the selection, then continue by holding your mouse left button down and drag to draw a free form selection outline.
Make a selection outline with the Lasso Tool is like drawing with a pen or pencil on paper. To complete the selection, simply return to the spot where you began and release your mouse button. You do not necessarily have to return the same spot you started from, but if you do not, Photoshop will automatically close the selection for you by drawing a straight line from the point where you released your mouse button to the point where you began from, so in most cases, you will want to finish where you started.
Photoshop will complete a selection automatically with a straight line if you do not drag back to the beginning point. To say that the Lasso Tool is not the most accurate of Photoshop’s selection tools would be an understatement, but its utility is greatly improved with Photoshop’s ability to add and to subtract from selections. I find that the better way to make selection with the Lasso Tool is to drag an initial selection around the object or area I’m selecting, ignoring any clear mistakes I made, then going back around & fixing up the problem areas by adding or subtracting from the selection as needed.
Don’t be worry about any mistakes with your initial selection. You must fix them later.
The initial selection is completed, but there’s will be a quite few problem areas that need to fix.
Since the Lasso Tool is needy a manual selection tool that relies heavily on your own drawing skills, as well as on the accuracy & performance of your mouse, you will probably end up with an initial selection outline that falls well short of perfect, as mine did also. No more worry , since we can easily fix up the problem areas, which we will do next!
Rest of several problem areas with the initial selection.
No need to do all over again. I can easily fix this by simply adding to the existing selection. First make sure you still have the Lasso Tool selected on tool bar, then to add to a selection, hold down your Shift key. You’ll see a small plus sign (+) appear in the bottom right of the cursor icon, seems to letting you know that you’re now in Add to Selection mode & also has icon on With the Shift key held down, click inside of the existing selection, then drag outside of previous and along the edge of the area you need to add. When you are done adding the new area, drag back beneath of the existing selection.
No worries though, since we can remove parts of a selection just as easily as we can add to them. To remove an unwanted area from a selection, hold down your Alt (Win) / Option (Mac) key. This will place you in Subtract from Selection mode, and you’ll see a small minus sign (-) appear in the bottom right corner of the cursor icon. With the Alt / Option key held down, simply click anywhere outside of the existing selection to set a starting point, then drag inside the selection and along the edge of the area you want to remove. In my case, I’m going to drag along the edge of the finger. When you’re done, drag back outside of the existing selection:
The final selection
There should be some roughness of your cropping area that will disturb you about perfection. There have some ways to get it out, we are talking about one of them. Go to the menu bar then click on select button to get modify & the next is feather. We want to give some feather to our selection. Thus the edges will be more smooth.
The Final Step
Go to the menu bar then click on select button, make your selection inverse by clicking inverse, there you can see your unwanted areas are selected then just press Delete & you will see your unwanted areas has gone forever. You can save it on .png or .jpg or .tiff format. There is not you background as well as your subject is cut off from others
