Photoshop - Expand selection

December 2016


I want to expand someselections by making them grow through their center. Is this possible with Photoshop?


When you draw the selection, simply hold down the ALT key. You can and, for example, draw an ellipse or rectangular selection through its center. Note that: you must release the mouse button before the ALT key to end the selection.
