I have an issue with selection.

I am choosing quick mask to select an object but it's the area around the object I want to modify (in Photoshop, I used to be able to inverse selection and the pixels outside the selection were then selected)

How do I do that?

Hi, I'm having the same problem, but invert selection seems to just deselect the entire selection. I made a screen recording in case it helps. What am I doing wrong? If you don't want to view the recording, essentially I'm just selecting a portion of the image, and then *trying* to inverse the selection so that I can delete the rest.

Any help would be appreciated.

Selected the flower. See the ants just around flower. I used the selection brush.

Thanks Toltec, that's exactly what I'm trying to do. For whatever reason, when I select inverse, it just deselects everything. Haven't tried on a different computer, maybe it's some weird pref?
