Hello, on PC, when I try to refine the edges of a selection to get a nice clean edge using the smooth function, it wants to remove the corners of the rectangluar shape (piece of art) I'm working on. How do I get a clean edge without loosing corners? thanks much

Not sure exactly what you are describing but if you use the Rectangular Marque Tool on a Pixel layer you do not need to click the Refine button, to get a "nice clean edge" just make your selection and use Layer > Duplicate to create a new layer with just your selected pixels in it.  (then hide the background layer)

Or, alternatively, after making your selection use Select > Invert Pixel Selection and hit the delete key

Also, make sure the Feather setting for the Rectangular Marque Tool is set to 0px when making your initial selection.

If the above is not what you want, please add some more information or some screenshots to help better describe the problem


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 concerned about.
