Magic Wand Settings



Mode specifies how magic wand selection works. Default value is Inclusive.

Inclusive:  the selection is a closed polygon.

Exclusive:  the selection includes only points that match the initial pixel, similar to a flood fill.

Global:  the selection includes all points that match the initial pixel, examining all pixels of the image.


Set Max Filter to True (default value is False) to apply a maximum filter to the magic wand selection (remove the "black hole").


Tolerance specifies the color difference of original point and region point (default 15). A low number selects colors of a very close match, whereas a higher value allows much broader color differences.



Use the arrow keys ["Ctrl" + arrow key] to move selected area.
