    Path selection acts weird

    wind-up bird

      Hi everyone,

       

      Help me please! I made a path and after selecting it the selection makes a different form than the path. Like this:

      This is only happening at this area, other parts are good. Do any of you have an idea what to do with it?

       

      Thanks a lot.

          Did you make a selection from the path by right clicking in the path and choosing make selection or doing the selection from the paths panel?

           

          Did you have any other selections active or choose something other than new selection?

           

          What version of photoshop and operating system?

            Hi,

             

            I tried to make the selection every way:

             

            • by right clicking in the path and make selection,
            • by right clicking on the path on the path panel and make selection,
            • by clicking on the path on the path panel while holding ctrl key…

             

            … and the result is the same all the time.

             

            I didn't have any other selection.

             

            I use PS CS5 version 12.0.4 × 32, my operating system is Win 7 Enterprise SP1

             

            I never experienced anything ilke this before. I restarted the system and tried it again, but it's the same.

              What's your layer structure look like?  Is there a layer in the stack - for example a black background mask - that ends vertically right there?

                Hi Noel,

                 

                I only have one layer that contains the image itself, without mask, without anything. Tonight I'm going to try it once again to see if it's a one time occasion.

                 

                Here's the layer and the paths panel:
