Get to Know Paint Shop Pro:
The Magic Wand Tool
What color is the sky in your world? With
Paint Shop Pro’s Magic Wand Tool, it can
be whatever you want. You can easily
change the color in photos with partly
cloudy skies. The Magic Wand Tool lets
you select areas of blue without selecting
clouds in just a few clicks of the mouse.
And it doesn’t just work on skies. The
Magic Wand Tool works great for selecting
all sorts of irregular areas.
Rather than making selections based on the shape or outline of an object, the
Magic Wand matches the pixels in a selection to what you define. You can set it
to recognize and select areas of a photo based on color, hue, brightness, or
opacity. With the Magic Wand and this tutorial, you’ll be able to select irregular
photo areas and change them with ease.
What you’ll need:

clicked determines how much of the sky gets selected, but there should be areas that still
require selecting.

Look at the sky for an area that is not selected and should be, then click again to include that
area to the existing selection.
