Selecting Ovals and Circles in Photoshop CC

Selecting Ovals and Circles in Photoshop CC is one of my most favorite things to do. The image below is just a basic image. I opened the image. Then I made an oval selection. Then, I went to the select dropdown menu and selected “invert.” That command selected everything outside of the selection. Then, I hit the delete key and everything but the oval was deleted, leaving me only with the oval and the part to the image I wanted to use.

Selecting Ovals and Circles in Photoshop CCWhen I deleted, that left me with a transparent background. With a transparent background, that means that I can export it as a Png 24 from Photoshop and I can put it on any web page, and it has no background. So if the page I place this image on is red, green, blue, purple or whatever, it fits right in.

Also, before I exported the image as a Png 24, I gave it a strong drop shadow. This is just one example of Selecting Ovals and Circles in Photoshop CC.

Below I have another example of Selecting Ovals and Circles in Photoshop CC. With the image below, I made an oval selection around the lady, then I copied the selection. I took the original image to grayscale. This is a little tricky, taking an image to grayscale and then bringing in a part of the image as color. This is tricky because once a take an image to grayscale by going to the “image” drop down menu and selecting, mode, grayscale, after you do that, you can’t add color to the image. So if you want to add color to the image, after you take it to grayscale, you must go back to image, mode and then select RGB. Then, you can add color to the image.

Once I dragged her in from the original color image, I selected they layer she was in and used Free Transform to enlarge her just a bit.

I like selecting oval portions of images a lot. Studies show that oval type images have more of an effect on people than rectangles.
