    How to select an area bounded by a scattered edge

    Thanks for all these terrific tips! I love how the layers enable the soft color blending underneath the black edge. I will have to play around that, not something I've had much guidance for but I'm looking forward to trying this out.

    Thanks John, I will try this.

    How to select an area bounded by a scattered edge

    This is nice John. I have photoshop 7, does it have the pen tool that you are using?

    How to select an area bounded by a scattered edge

    I want to select the interior of the petals that are NOT colored and do fills. That said, I've already successfully filled the magenta areas, using the linear lasso tool to define a boundary, then stroke to create a closed boundary enabling me to do the fill. That's what I discovered I could...

    How to select an area bounded by a scattered edge

    The colored area is what I am trying to achieve and have been able to do so far. The flower on the left is what I'm starting from. Reducing this down to a jpg actually condensed a lot of the edge, but in the original the black edges are quite spotty.

    Just discovered this, Edit Stroke - line thickness. Works wonderfully!

    How to select an area bounded by a scattered edge

    That's quite a trick, Tom! I don't think it will apply in my case. I scanned in a simple pen drawing. I have a choice between two colors: black and white. I'm going to assume that increasing or descreasing the breadth of the selection of the magic wand will choose either all the white - or...

    How to select an area bounded by a scattered edge

    Ok, so I've discovered (I'm don't use PS often enough!) that I can use the magnetic lasso tool to bridge those gaps in dark pixels and in effect create a boundary, at least in selection. Is there anyway to use that selection to superimpose a line over it, without having to actually paint along...

    How to select an area bounded by a scattered edge

    I sketched a delicate line drawing that I scanned into photoshop. The edges of the flowers are comprised of thin walls of scattered black pixels that don't create a solid boundary. When I try to select just the interior of a petal using the magic wand tool to do a fill, the selection of course...
