Freehand Selection Tool

Recommended Posts

When I try to use the freehand selection tool under the polygonal setting it will not select the area I choose. Below I have attached photos of before and after I connect the tool. I work to make sure the selection is not outside the line I made, after I connect it will go outside The original selection. Is this something that can be fixed…?111EF4A8-087D-44D2-96E2-10E482C308BE.thumb.png.ebd9e32cb8f13ed98fa949320a702d59.png3D6B847D-9DE5-4D58-9533-5999731CA382.thumb.png.c852005101e55552f412598f9724a39f.png

Hard to tell from pic but is layer 4 a pixel layer? This may be why the selection tool is not working the way you expect it too. Selection tools only work on raster (pixel) layer, not image/vector layers. If in doubt choose the layer and use the layer studio options menu (little circle with 3 dots) then tap Rasterise. This will convert your layer to a pixel layer.

what exactly are you trying to achieve?
