Marquee Tool

The marquee tool is one of the most basic
selection tools in Photoshop, but it’s still
pretty darn useful. By default, it makes
rectangular selections, but you can also use
it to select elliptical, single-pixel vertical and
horizontal lines, squares, and circles.
Just click and drag to make your selection,
and then release the mouse button when
you’re done. You can also hold down the
Shift key to add to an existing selection, or
the Alt (Option on a Mac) key to subtract
from an existing selection.
And that’s pretty much all there is to it! So
go forth and select away!
