    Pen tool with Refine Edge tool..

    Hi guys,

    Normally i used to cut out only with the "quick selection tool" but now i began with the pen tool too because you can get the job done much better sometimes. The only problem is how i can "refine edge" after i selected the piece i want to cut out and i export it as a "new layer via copy"??? After cutting out with the "quick selection tool" you can immediately choose "refine edge" but after the pen tool i can't find it?

    Does somebody knows this?

    Control click on the path you just made and you will get a selection, and there you go. Or apply a layer mask and then use the refine mask option.

    Hit Ctrl+Enter to make a selection, Same as Clareby says but a tad quicker

    Here's another way:

    Once you export it as a "new layer via copy", highlight the new layer, command + click the new layers thumbnail to make a selection (marching ants), go to SELECT > REFINE EDGE.
