I believe that the magic wand will select a 'color range', which can and will include a range of colors. If you select and move your mouse while holding the button, the selected area will grow/shrink as it widens/narrows the range. I just tested this as follows: create an image, Fill this area with a gradient. Select roughly the center of the gradient, but hold the mouse button down and move your mouse north/south or east/west. As you do, you'll see the selected area grow/shrink. > > -- > --Jeff > > Jeff Trefftzs <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> > http://www.tcsn.net/trefftzs Home Page > http://gug.sunsite.dk/gallery.php?artist=68 Gimp Gallery > http://trefftzs.topcities.com/home.html Photo galleries > > _______________________________________________ > Gimp-user mailing list > [EMAIL PROTECTED] > http://lists.xcf.berkeley.edu/mailman/listinfo/gimp-user -- Until later: Geoffrey [EMAIL PROTECTED] "...the system (Microsoft passport) carries significant risks to users that are not made adequately clear in the technical documentation available." - David P.
