In this tutorial, you will learn how to make selections using the pen tool in Photoshop CS5.

The pen tool in Photoshop gives users more control over selections than almost any other tool or method. With the pen tool you are able to create complex paths by clicking to make points. By clicking and dragging you can make a curved line. Each of these points and curves can be adjusted using the white direct selection tool.

To make the final selection you will need to right click inside the path with the pen tool and go to make selection. With this level of control you should have no trouble making the selections you need. Good luck.
