What Is the Object Selection Tool in Photoshop?

Last updated on September 23, 2022 @ 11:08 pm

The Object Selection tool is one of the more powerful and versatile tools available in Photoshop. It allows you to quickly and easily select objects in your image, and then perform various actions on them.

The Object Selection tool is located in the Toolbox, under the Select menu. To select an object, simply click on it with the tool.

To select multiple objects, hold down the Shift key while clicking on each object. Once you have made your selection, you can move the objects around, change their size or shape, or even delete them entirely.

One of the great things about the Object Selection tool is that it can be used on any type of object, including text. This means that you can easily select and manipulate text in your image, without having to use the more complex Type tool.

PRO TIP: The Object Selection Tool in Photoshop can be used to select and move objects in your image. However, if you are not careful, you can accidentally move or delete objects in your image.

To use the Object Selection tool on text, simply click on the text with the tool. You will then see a bounding box around the text. You can move this box around to reposition the text, or you can use the handles to change its size or shape.

If you want to delete the text entirely, simply press the Delete key. You can also use the Object Selection tool to select multiple pieces of text and move them around as a group.

The Object Selection Tool is an incredibly powerful and versatile option when it comes to Photoshop- especially when trying to edit images with a lot of detail or many different elements. Not only can it be used on literally any kind of object within an image- but it also makes working with and manipulating text much simpler than using the Type Tool. To use, simply click on the desired object with the mouse and a bounding box will appear which can be used to resize, rotate, or delete said object.
