I think having a smoothing slider just like the one in the brush tool would make precise selections with lasso tools much easier. Yes there is already a pen tool to select accurately but using lasso can speed up the process a lot when using a tablet.

How would this work with a selection tool like the lasso? What do you envision? A new tool, that would automatically open up a modal dialog window to enter options/slider etc?

 

An interim method could be to convert the selection to Quick Mask mode, interactively apply a filter (Median, Minimum, Maximum), and then exit Quick Mask mode. An Action (F-key) or Script (custom keyboard shortcut) could speed up the use. I looked into the Script Events Manager, however, I couldn't find an event for the lasso tool.

already have a plug-in with that feature. Smoothing can be applied to all tools such as pen tool as well as lasoo tool.

lazy nezumi pro << Look it up and see. Aren't those the functions you want?

I think it would be odd.  Personally... if you want precise precise then use the pen tool.

Or.... use a display tablet.  But the selection tools are getting better.

Thank you all for your comments on my idea. I actually was not believing this idea would get comments 🙂

@Stephen_A_Marsh 
I really did not tought I was not clear enough of what I envision :). When using brush tool you hold and drag, just like you do with lasso. I am not a developer just tought it would be cool to have to speed up selections.

@Jqqerry
Thank you for the info. I am already aware of lazy nezumi, I was just thinking of having something built in, easier to use.

@KShinabery212 
I already use the pen tool for such selections, my offer is actually having an option to save time on such selections since pen tool was not build to hold and drag (which is way faster that point, click and drag) and not making it a selection unless you press another button.

I see the idea did not sound impressive to you guys, but thanks for taking time to write anyways

@KP5FC7  Before Photoshop had the option of smoothing, that plug-in made those useful features first, so I think that smoothing option will be applied to a variety of tools in the future.
I personally felt it was necessary, but it's different from you. I always thought that I wanted the sensitivity to be more dull when adjusting the next path of pentool. I've been using the pen tool for more than 10 years, but with this feedback and hope, Photoshop is developing.
I agree with your idea thread

@Jqqerry 
Thank you, also it sounds right to think they are already thinking of implementing smoothing to more tools actually 🙂

@Stephen_A_Marsh 
You are completely right sir, I was not trying to be sarcastic or anything. It is my fault I was not clear enough, thanks for asking me to be more clear

@KP5FC7 – I have no idea what/if there are differences from a programming level between brushes and lasso. So you are suggesting something that affects the selection during the creation of the selection, not after the selection (I was thinking something like a post-selection "refine edge"). So my misunderstanding of your request.
