Re: [Gimp-user] free select lasso tool options

the "+" and "-" of the selection tools allows for a broad initial selection
followed by the aforementioned keys to tweak the original selection to what
is needed, do they not? therefore, can the user not select a broad range of
pixels and then narrow the selection with the "-" key to fulfill the
desired result from the initial selection? i have done this on many

 I know it is cool that you can edit the selection live in

Does it? Are there many people who just draw a loop with the lasso tool
and want it to make a selection right away, instead of using it to draw
and edit a shape?

Overall the GIMp team tends to favour workflows for experienced users,
but things that make life easier for a lot of users are ewlcomed if
they're not at the expense of others. But such a mode would have to be
the default for inexperienced peope to find it, right?
