Knotty Lasso selections (video included)

Recommended Posts

I'm a concept artist and often start a piece by blocking out large shapes using the Lasso tool. However, when drawing organic shapes, Photo's Lasso tool does not give the clean edges that Photoshop does. I whipped up THIS quick demonstration video, showing results of the Photoshop lasso vs the Photo lasso.

Hi @bitey,

Photoshop might have some sort of stabiliser, and also they do not seem to take into account the pixels, and they average your selection based on the pixels AFTER you make the selection. We lock the selection on pixels, so there is no "on the fly smoothing" applied. 

I have moved this to feature requests.

Thanks,

Gabe.

thank you @GabrielM for the explanation. I get much smoother Lasso selections with Lazy Nezumi's "Speed Smooth" activated, so it looks like you're probably right about Photoshop using some kind of default stabilising behind the scenes. For now I'll use Lazy Nezumi with Photo's Lasso tool.

I noticed the "jaggy effect" on other types of selections, for the same reason of "selection lock on pixels" and it often requires editing of the mask, to remove this irregularity. Smoothing the selection still keeps a very "wavy" line, unless considerable smoothing is being applied, but then the selection gets affected everywhere.
So, this should be improved in a future release.
Thanks for making AF better!

Same here, as a concept artist AP has room to grow. Maybe photo hobbyists don't care so much, but concept artists use lasso quite often

So having a dependable lasso tool is essential. Hopefully you gets addressed by the team 9_9
