In trying to use the lasso tool one of two things are occurring:
(1) I receive this message -- "Warning: No pixels are more than 50% selected. The selection edge will not be visible."
(2) When I release my pen tool the selection mysteriously shrinks to a size smaller than I had selected.
Is there a solution to this problem?
Reduce the Feather value in the Options bar before drawing with the Lasso Tool.
Also make sure your targeting the right layer. Selection are made on layers if the layer contains transparent pixels or the layers opacity is set low you will not see where the selection is for Photoshop only places marching ants around pixels that have at lease 50% opacity.
I was having the same problem and I figured out why. I was deleting the background layer. I do not understand why but the background layer needs to be there to select 100% of the pixels.
I put the Feather as 0% and that fixed my problem.
I just had the same issue. As instucted above, I reduced the feahter to 0%, however this didn't fix my issue. My issue was with the style. Simply change the syle from fixed ratio/size to normal. Hope this helps!
I tired all of the suggestions, but to no avail.
Where is the style?
I can´t find it
You really saved my life, hahaha.
I'm glad I finally looked for the answer to this problem. Thank you! What is interesting is how the 'platform' changes, a lot. I never changed the Feather option, what the hell is a Feather? Brushes disappearing, Actions going away and on and on . . . Feather, now there is someting else to look up. Good Luck!
