Shrinking and Growing alpha

If you painted a little too fast or there's a lot of white-bright color bleeding along the edges, it's possible that you may want to trim the selection a little to the inside of the current selection. Or, it could sometimes be the opposite, where you may want to grow the selected region.

With the apple selection still inverted, shrink the alpha: selected

menu: Alpha > Shrink alpha...




Select just one or two units.




Blurring the selection edge (Blur Alpha)

It might help to add a little bit blurring along the edges of the selection mask. Click

menu: Alpha > Blur alpha...



Again, go easy on this, just a few units.
