    Which tool should you use to create an irregularly shaped selection made up of only straight lines?

    • A.

      A. Lasso

    • B.

      B. Polygonal Lasso

    • C.

      C. Magnetic Lasso

    • D.

      D. Rectangular Marquee

    Correct Answer

    True or false? You can select only one range of colors when using the Color Range command.

    Correct Answer
    False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because when using the Color Range command, you can actually select multiple ranges of colors. The Color Range command allows you to select specific colors or color ranges within an image by creating a selection based on color similarity. This means you can select multiple ranges of colors by adding or subtracting different color ranges to or from the selection.

  • 6. 

    True or false? If you want to move the selected pixels, rather than the selection marquee, you should drag with the Move tool, not a selection tool.

    Correct Answer
    True
    Explanation
    If you want to move the selected pixels, rather than the selection marquee, you should drag with the Move tool, not a selection tool. This means that if you want to move the actual content of the selected area, you should use the Move tool in order to do so. The selection tools are used to create a marquee around the desired area, but dragging with them will only move the marquee itself, not the pixels within it.

    B. B. Use the Actions panel to record a series of steps you perform in Photoshop
    Explanation
    To create a Photoshop action, you can use the Actions panel to record a series of steps that you perform in Photoshop. This means that you can manually perform a set of actions in Photoshop, such as applying filters, adjusting colors, or resizing images, and then record those steps using the Actions panel. Once recorded, you can save the action and apply it to other images to automate the same set of steps, saving time and effort. Writing the action in JavaScript code or using scripting languages like VBScript or AppleScript are not the correct methods for creating a Photoshop action.
