Selections
==========
Selections allow you to pick a specific area of your artwork to change. This is useful for when you want to move a section, transform it, or paint on it without affecting the other sections. There are many selection tools available that select in different ways. Once an area is selected, most tools will stay inside that area. On that area you can draw or use gradients to quickly get colored and/or shaded shapes with hard edges.
