Hello,

     I'd like to get Marching ants on the contents of a Pixel Layer in Fresco.

     In Photoshop I would have Cmd-clicked on the Layer, but I'm not sure how to do the equivalent here.

     Thanks in advance for your help.

Regards,

Rajnesh

You can't do that in Fresco. However, there are ways to work around what you want to do. For example, if you want to create a pixel selection so that you can paint inside it, you can add a new layer above and use the clipping feature to effectively create a selection based on layer contents. If you describe exactly what you're trying to do, perhaps we can offer specific ideas of how to achieve the results.

Thank You, Michael. That will work for me. I was trying to limit areas to paint within, so your solution solved my issue.

In additional to Michael's suggestion. Fresco is more of a manual selection process, you could use the Lasso tool, either in freehand or in one of the additional options. This will create a March Ants selection around the shape which you create.

Thank You, Sjaani. I'll get familiar with the Lasso tool and suggest the Cmd-Click as an Enhancement Upgrade to the developers. Take care.
