Lasso tool makes two selections at one time

I thought I was making the outer circular selection, but when the dots are completed the inner rectangle appears.  It had beem working OK, but suddenly changed.  I'm not sure if I have changed some of the settings.

 

The same thing happens if I use the Quick Selection, but Not with Marquee tool.

    Reminds me somehow of photos I've taken at Shark Valley.  Something about the lighting and the foliage...

     

    When Photoshop acts up there are some basic things people often advise to try:

     

    1.  Check to see if everything's up to date (Photoshop updates, driver updates, etc.)

    2.  Clear Photoshop's preferences to defaults.  This of course means you'll have to remake all your preferences changes.

    I know  of no legitimate setting or mode that should cause your selection to be complex like that.

    1) Make sure Photoshop has all the latest updates installed.

    2) Make sure your video card driver is up to date

     

    My first guess would be the video card driver just not drawing the marquee correctly.

     

    But I think I recall an old (very old) bug we fixed that would cause selections to draw incorrectly like that.

    Yes, my reaction was to wonder what version of Photoshop  and OS this references

    Still don't know what version of Photoshop you're referencing.  I saw something similar with Photoshop 11.x on Tiger 10.4.11 quite some time ago.
