    I made a big mistake updating. I wanted to get the new feature where I could draw a line around some feature in a photo and then EXTRACT THAT FEATURE for use elsewhere. So I purchased your entire suite of stuff including video and whatever else. All I want is to find the regular photo editing software in your huge suite of stuff. JUST TELL ME THE MENU ITEM THAT LETS ME DRAW THE MAGIC LASSO.

      Hello Kevin,

      The lasso icon is the Freehand Selection tool, found under the same button as all the other selection tools – rectangular/shaped selection, magic wand, etc. Here is the user guide entry on selection tools to help you get started!
