Can someone please help me with my selection.
I am trying to select my lips, however when I try to make the inner selection of the lips in this image - nothing happens. I have the selection option at Add to the Current Selection :hammer_head:

RJKD,

When you have previously selected the outside of the lips, you then need to use Subtract from the Current Selection to exclude the teeth.
Shift plus the select tool will give you Add to Selection.
Ctrl plus the select tool gives you Subtract from Selection.

Because I am very inaccurate at drawing, I rapidly go from one to the other to make corrections!

If you are following my tutorial, I would first select the inside of the lips (the teeth) and save to a channel. Then select the outside of the lips, go to the "teeth" channel, right-click and select "Subtract from Selection" from the drop-down menu. That way you know that you are getting exactly the same dividing line between the two selections.

I hope this makes sense! Any problems - just ask.

david.

Thankyou David, your response made perfect sense. I'm learning a lot from this tutorial as I've only ever used channels once before.
I was able to make my selection by subtracting from the teeth and gum channels to give me the lips outlined as a selection. :thumbsup:

RJKD,

Congratulations! An excellent result. I'm glad the tutorial is of use to you.
I am sure it can be improved, but it is the method that works for me and I made the tutorial in the hope that it will help others.
