Recently i started to use my Rectangluar Marquee tool more for vignettes on photos.. I just noticed in the last two days that when i hit the RM tool and try and drag a rectangular box and hit the green check mark around my photo it defaults into a eclipse or what i thought was a circle. Yes i am sure i have it set on the correct marquee. It's just kinda annoying as i am tryiny to creat a box around my photo to vignette and defaults into a eclipse ( or cirlce).
I don't have screen shot right now, i will try and get one later...but what has happened? Is something changed? Or do i need to reset my tools?
also last night when i was digital scrapbooking, i made a pattern i filled my 4x6 at 200dpi photo background with the pattern i had made, when i went to merge visable all the latyers together the background with the pattern in it disappeared. When i unmerged visable the background came back..?? any ideas why this happend??
For the rectangular marquee tool check the feather value in the tool options bar.
It should be set to 0 px.
For the second question if you view your image at a 100% view (actual pixels) before and while merging the layers, does that make a difference?
(double click on the Zoom Tool in the tool box to see the view at 100% (actual pixels)
umm yeah my feather was set at 0. i will try it again and let you know.. and for my 2nd question,i think i know what i did wrong, but i will see if viewing it as lesser pixels helps and not at full 100%
