The Free Select Tool Polygon Lasso as a Select Tool

The polygon lasso has been introduced to GIMP in version 2.6. You can cut out image objects precisely along the contours and quickly extract constructed, preferably straight forms. I'll show you how to use the polygon lasso in the following section.

You must work cautiously when you are making a selection, and you must adjust the settings when you are extracting a rounded form such as a wine glass. Actually, GIMP has a tool better suited for these kinds of tasks -the Paths tool. But you will notice that you can manage just as well with the polygon lasso. Therefore, I will compare the two.
