If the circle is one color then select magic want to select that area and then delete it. I'd have to see the picture though to really tell you the best way to go about it. There are different ways depending on the situation.

no particular picture just experimenting. Lets say I have a picture of tree tops (all sorts of foliage) and I wanted to cut a circle into it. How would i go about that? The magic wand and lasso are really tricky for those situations. Is there a way just to pick a circle size ,like in filter for twirl or something?

Okay I think I understand, I hope so anyways. In your toolbar in the very top left you will see a dashed square box (Rectangualr Marquee Tool). Scroll on it hold it down and you should get an option for more tools. You should see one labeled Elliptical Marquee Tool. Select that. You may already know this but if there is a black triangle in the bottom right of a particular tool then if you hold down your mouse button it will reveal additional tools.

BUT back on track........take the Elliptical tool and click on picture and hold down shift and while doing that drag mouse. This will give you a perfect circle, but you must hold down shift while doing it. Then you can use your cursor to move the circle around to where you want it exactly.

If you want to just have the picture that's inside of the circle then go to SELECT - INVERSE from the menu bar. This will cut everything from the outside of the circle when you hit delete. If you want everything on the outside left alone just don't click that option and just click delete. Hopefully I got your question right and I didn't confuse you. I am very confusing sometimes. :black:

SORRY ABOUT THE 3 POSTS IN A ROW BUT I HAVE A PROBLEM,
I accidently clicked the slice tool, How do I get rid of it? Step back does not do it. Only way i can find is to close the image. There has to be another way. Even picking another tool, the slicelines remain. ERRRRR!

Select View in menu bar and at the very bottom select the Clear Slices button.

Hehe, I am working on my website and have for the past week so been bored and coming here a lot. I will probably go blind one day from looking at the screen so long. I never take the breaks like I am supposed to.

Im new to this! Im use to Flash from college. But I really want to use CS, as I own it. I was wondering how long would it take to practice enough so that I can create pretty good websites that people will pay money for?? Don't get me wrong. Im not about the money. I love learning.

depends on your learning abilities, some learn faster than others. My sgugestion is practice as often as possible, but don't expect to draw in cash for some time to come, the web is full of wannabes look at me for instance, I would love to make cash with it but competition is fierce for someone on the outside of the "know" Master your skills then rethink your $ strategy
