How to use move tool in Photoshop?
Just about any object that’s identifiable within the Photoshop interface can be manipulated by the Move tool, including:
- Text boxes
- Pasted objects
- Entire layers
You can even use the tool to drag elements from one Photoshop document to another. It’s a simple drag-and-drop process.
The Move tool is the only Photoshop tool that can be used even when it’s not selected in the tool bar. Just hold down CTRL on a PC or COMMAND on a Mac, and you’ll instantly activate the Move tool no matter which tool is currently active. This makes it easy to rearrange your elements on the fly.
How to use selection tool?
A selection isolates part of an image so you can work on that area without affecting the rest of the image.
- In the Tools panel, select the Rectangular Marquee tool. Drag a rectangular selection onto the image. The area inside the animated border represents your selection.
- To select more, click the Add to selection icon in the options bar or press Shift and drag. To select less, click the Subtract from selection icon in the options bar or press Alt (Windows) or Option (macOS) and drag.
- Select a layer you want to adjust. Then try applying some adjustments (Image > Adjustments). With a selection active, adjustments affect only the selected area of that layer. The same is true if you were to apply a filter, paint, fill, copy, or make other edits.
- To deselect choose Select > Deselect or press Control+D (Windows) or Command+D (macOS)
