Do you at times have trouble editing a serrated margin on your images? Or, have you ever struggled with finding your way around drawing an odd curve while editing your photos? If the answer to these questions is yes, then using the Lasso tool in Photoshop could put your worries to rest. True to its name, this Photoshop tool helps you capture a shape accurately and with greater ease.
