Adobe Marquee Tool Options

You can use the Marquee Options Bar to make changes to the way in which the Marquee tools work.

1. Select the Rectangular or Elliptical Marquee tool. Make sure the New Selection button is selected in the Options Bar.

2. Use the Style pop-up to create settings for making proportional selections, or selections of a fixed size. If you select Fixed Size, enter the values you require in the Width and Height entry fields.

3. The Anti-aliased option is an important control when using bitmap applications such as Photoshop. Select Anti-aliased to create a slightly blurred, soft edge around the selection and the pixels that surround the selection. Using Anti-aliased helps avoid creating unwanted jagged edges.

4. Use the Feather entry field to create a soft, feathered edge. (See on Feathering Selections)
