TIP: hold down Shift to ream the selection
« on: October 07, 2005, 09:10:07 AM »
hold down the Shift-Key to ream the selection:

- make an selection with LMB
- hold down the Shift-Key
- enhance the selection / or make an second/third/... selection with LMB
- do one action with all selections at once.

i didn't know you could do that..

This works in normal, old selection mode only,
not in enhanced "Object Selection Mode".


So, if it not to hard to code,
a button on the right side "Fill inside with..."
what pops up an " choose color " dialog box
and fill the selection with the choosen color
would be nice.

In addition to "Blur inside"

HowTo for the help file:

1.) make your first selection by holding down the left mouse button and move the mouse (pic 1)
2.) press and hold down the Shift-Key
3.) make your second (and more) selections (pic 2 +3)
4.) release the Shift-Key
5.) do an action on that selections, like "Blur Outside" (pic 4)
See the result (pic 5)

Note: for documentation issue the selections are light yellow.

Thanks Stefan, nice idea!

I tested it too to get another effect, see the result below. And btw, try to do as I did and find that two words Google search string that shows aliens, a plane *and* the Moulin Rouge on ONE page! :)

An another example:

1.) make your first selection by holding down the left mouse button and move the mouse (pic 1)
2.) press and hold down the Shift-Key
3.) make your second (and more) selections (pic 2 +3)
4.) release the Shift-Key
5.) invert the selection (pic 6)
6.) open the "Adjust Colors and More..." dialog from the SpecialFX menu
7.) decrease the contrast and increase the brightness (pic 7)
see the result in pic 8
