Using the Refine Brush

Using the Refine Brush

With the new Refine brush added to the Selection toolset in PaintShop Pro 2020, you can now select an object with extreme precision and accuracy, down to a single strand of hair. In this tutorial we will review the controls in the options palette such as preview presets, brush modes, adjustment sliders and output options. Once you are familiar with the controls, give it a try yourself – you’ll have to see it to believe it!

    I’ve watch this a few times and tried many different options and I just can’t get the refine to work as described. Very frustrating and I end up manually selecting. I just don’t understand how to make it work properly. very frustrating.
