Quick selection size too big?????

Dec 26, 2012 10:42 PM

I'm trying to use the quick selection tool to take part of an image out and combine it with another but when i click to make the first selection a "Could not use the Quick Selection because the result would be too big." message shows up. I havent even made a selection so how would it determine if it's too big? I just don't get it.


I have never seen this before and I can't find anything on how to work around this. Any help?

    What are the specifics of the image (bit depth, pixel dimensions, …)?

    Could you please post a screenshot with the pertinent Panels visible?

    Have you reset the Tools or trashed your prefs yet?



    Are Photoshop and OS fully updated and have you performed the usual trouble-shooting routines (trashing prefs by keeping command-alt-shift/ctrl-alt-shift pressed while starting Photoshop after making sure all customized presets like Actions, Patterns, Brushes etc. have been saved and making a note of the Preferences you’ve changed, 3rd party plug-ins deactivation, system maintenance, cleaning caches, font validation, etc.)?
