Creating a Refine macro for the lasso tool doesn't work as expected

Recommended Posts

Because of the very uneven results produced by the Lasso tool that prevent you from creating smooth selections, I was trying to create a clean-up macro that would allow me to fix the selection with Refine and Smooth slider. However, when trying to reuse this macro in practice, it just duplicates the original lasso selection which makes it extremely impractical to work with. In my honest opinion, I wish that the Lasso tool had some sort of automatic smooth algorithm applied after every new selection to fix these problems so I wouldn't need to try and do this. Doesn't help that Refine doesn't remember your user settings.

Have you tried using Select > Smooth in the macro instead of Refine?

Note: I don't know if the Select > Smooth slider value correspond exactly to the Refine smooth slider value so you may need to experiment with the values


Due to the fact that Boris Johnson is now our Prime Minister, punctuation, spelling and grammar will never be worried about ever again.  We now have far bigger problems to be worried about.

Seems to work, thanks! I tried to compare the two and they seem to work just about the same. Still, the current behaviour of the Refine macro is really odd to say the least.
