In this post, we’ll discuss why the Object Selection tool is so important and give some tips on how to master it as a beginner!

Object Selection Tool

Photoshop’s Object Selection tool is a photoshop user’s dream come true.

Not only does it make photoshopping effortless, but it can select all the right object or regions automatically!

Anything you may need for photoshopping is easily accessible and at your disposal – people, cars, pets, sky, water, buildings, plants and mountains. Sounds like magic?

It kind of is!

But hey, Photoshoppers have been dreaming about it since photoshop existed so why not finally turn that into reality?

Quick Selection Tool

If you’ve been searching for the photoshop quick selection tool, you don’t have to look any further!

It’s hiding in plain sight on the photoshop toolbar.

If you take a closer look at the third option from the bottom, you’ll notice it has a paintbrush with dotted lines around the edge.

That’s right, it’s just waiting there to be used! So next time you need your photoshop project finished in a jiffy, go ahead and locate that quick select tool – because trust us, it’ll make life so much faster (and easier).

Magic Wand Tool

What does the Magic Wand tool do?

The Magic Wand tool automatically selects an object or area of your image, using machine learning to discern what you might be trying to select.

If you click on the sky, it selects the sky; click on a person’s face, and you have the entire face selected in just seconds.


The Object Selection Tool, Quick Selection Tool, and Magic Wand Tool are all great ways to make selections in Photoshop.

If you’re not sure which one to use, try them all out and see which one works best for you.
