This Photoshop trick may save you a lot of headache…

In the midst of finishing my Phase 3 Photo Essay composite, blending my photos and such, I ran into a dilemma.  I had selected an image in one of my photos that was being moved to another photo but I had forgotten to resize the image first.  In my laziness I went searching for a way I could save the selection without having to go through the hassle of completely re-selecting it.  Lucky for me there is a way to do just that!

After your image is selected, making sure you are on the background layer, simply right click the selection and save it!

Click Save Selection

Resize your image, and then right click and click Load Selection.

Click on Load Selection to load your saved selection

Its a super simple trick but it will save a lot of time down the line!
