Step 1 How it Works ?

The Quick Selection Tool works more like a brush, allowing you to select an area simply by ‘painting’ over it.

It is a combination of the magic of magic wand and the ease of use of a paint brush.

This tool is unlike other selection tools wherein it doesn’t only select the color but also the texture. The result is it gives a highly precise selection with just a few clicks.

Difference between Quick selection and Magic Wand Tool Basically there isn’t any major differences in working of both the tools; they both work by selecting a similar color.

The only difference is that Quick Selection Tool detects the edges automatically based on the similarity with the color you had clicked first. Magic wand selects contiguous or noncontiguous colors based on the similarity of colors and setting that you chose from the options bar.

 

Step 2 Select Quick Selection Tool

Select the Quick Selection Tool by clicking on its icon in the Photoshop’s tool bar.
