Photoshop CC 2014: Select Focus Area

Screen Shot 2014-07-22 at 4.17.40 PMPhotoshop can now automatically detect the focused area of an image and select it for you. Use Select > Focus Area… to get started.  Among other things, I’m sure it’s using contrast detection to detect the edges. In my quick experiments, I don’t find it especially impressive or faster than the many other selection tools out there.

  • View Mode lets you switch between viewing the resulting selection on white, black, transparent, etc backgrounds
  • In-Focus Range – Determines the selection range. A lower value will narrow the selection, and a larger value will broaden the selection. Zero will select the entire image.
  • Image Noise Level – If the image has significant noise, use image noise level adjustment
  • Brushes – allow you to add or to subtract from selection
  • Output – select methods of output
  • Soften Edge – to lower contrast along the edges
  • Refine Edge – take the selection automatically to the refine edge tool
