Hello all,

My question concerns selecting and cutting images. I know there's a tool inside photoshop called "magnetic lasso" and I was wondering if there was a similar tool in Aura. What I am trying to do is cut a person out of their background so that I can eventually replace their background in VT-Edit. Similar to how they do in the trailer for the new Tom Hanks movie as well as the titles for each member on Queer Eye. The tools I have come across don't seem to have the ability as PS's 'magnetic lasso." How can I cut out a certain image without having to zoom in to 500% without letting go of the mouse? Unfortunately, I do not have that much dexterity.
Any suggestions would help this relatively novice Aura user.

THANKS!
Mark
