Copy bug using Marquee Tool and Quick Mask

Copy bug using Marquee Tool and Quick Mask

 

Starting with a file consisting of 2 layers (whereby the top layer is of another photo then the bottom layer), I want to select a part of the top layer using the Marquee Tool and paste it to a third layer. To achieve this, I do the following…

I activate the Marquee Tool, make a selection and subsequently use the Quick Mask tool and Move Tool to refine the selection. As you can see I moved the selection and changed its size. By activating the Marquee Tool again and deselecting the Quick Mask, I have now my refined selection which I can copy and paste. Doing that results in a totally wrong copied area. In the example I have included, I have the second layer de-activated, so that you can see the selected area (marquee) and the result of copy-paste.

Hi, not a direct answer to your issue but I use Select - 'Edit selection as layer' to refine selections as your showing, I don't get that offset issue even between layers.

Regards
