Move marquee selection in Photoshop

Here’s a quick tip for Photoshop – when you are drawing a marquee selection in Photoshop (the tool that makes the little marching ants selection) did you know you can move the selection while you are still drawing it ?

Simply hold down space while you are drawing your marquee, and you’ll find you have the ability to move the marquee selection – then simply let go of space and you back to editing that marquee size!

You can move the elliptical marquee selection by holding down space

This is especially great when you are trying to draw circular marquees as they can be quite tricky to line up with circular elements.
