The Rectangle Selection tool is designed to select rectangular regions of the active layer: it is the most basic of the selection tools, but very commonly used. For information on selections and how they are used in GIMP see Selections; for information on features common to all selection tools see Selection Tools.

이 도구를 이용해 사각형을 그릴 수도 있습니다. 속이 채워진 사각형을 그리려면 먼저 사각형의 선택을 만들고 채우기 도구를 이용해 선택을 칠합니다. 그리고 사각형 테두리는 사각형 선택을 만들고, 선택따라 그리기를 이용해 그립니다.

2.2.1. Activating the tool

다음 방법들을 통해 선택 도구를 사용할 수 있습니다. :

  • from the image menu bar ToolsSelection ToolsRectangle Select,

  • by clicking on the tool icon in the ToolBox,

  • by using the keyboard shortcut R.

2.2.2. Key modifiers

[참고] 참고

모든 선택 도구에 동일하게 적용되는 동작 변경 키에 대해서는 선택 도구를 보세요. 여기서는 사각 선택 도구에만 적용되는 특수한 키에 대해 설명할 것입니다.

Ctrl

Pressing the Ctrl key after starting your selection, and holding it down until you are finished, causes your starting point to be used as the center of the selected rectangle, instead of a corner. Note that if you press the Ctrl key before starting to make the selection, the resulting selection will be subtracted from the existing selection. The cursor becomes

Shift

If you press the Shift key before starting the selection, the resulting selection will be added to the existing one. The cursor becomes

Pressing the Shift key after starting your selection, toggles the Fixed option, and holding it down until you are finished, will constrain the selection to a square, if it is your first selection. Later, with the default Aspect Ratio , your selection will respect the aspect ratio of the previous selection.

Ctrl+Shift

Pressing both keys after starting your selection combines the two effects, giving you a square selection centered on your starting point. Note that pressing these keys before starting your selection intersects the resulting selection with the existing one and the pointer change shape accordingly :

2.2.3. Tool manipulation

그림 14.10. Example of Rectangle Selection.

Example of Rectangle Selection.

When this tool is selected the mouse pointer is displayed like this: as soon as it is over the image. A drag and drop allows to get a rectangular (or square) shape. When the mouse button is relaxed, a dotted line (marching ants) outlines the selection. It's not necessary to adjust the selection with care; you can resize it easily later.

When the pointer is moving on the canvas, the pointer and selection aspects change:

- outside the selection it looks like previously; this allows to design a new selection but will erase the existing one if this isn't combined with an action on the relevant key to add or subtract another selection as described in the previous paragraph.

- within selection peripheral parts, the mouse pointer changes into various shapes when overflying rectangular sensitive and clearly marked areas. These handles allow you to resize the selection. In selection corners the pointer changes into a shape according to the context; for instance in the low right corner it becomes: . So, by click-and-dragging these areas, you can magnify or shrink the selection size. Over median selection parts, lateral, low or up, pointer is changed into appropriate shapes according to the context. For instance, when the mouse pointer is over the median right side, the pointer looks like: . So you can click-and-drag to magnify or to shrink the selection size by moving the chosen boundary.

- inside selection central area the mouse pointer looks like usual for object manipulation, i.e.: . So you can move the whole selection by a click-and-drag.

Moreover, if you have not unchecked the Highlight option, your work will be easier because what is out the selection will be darkest than what is in the selection, and then the selection seems highlighted.

If you use moving keys you can move the selection or modify its size by one pixel step. If you use it in combination with Shift you can move it by a 25 pixel step.

After creating and modifying the selection, you will have to exit this editing mode (and commit any changes). You can do this with a single click inside the selection or by pressing the Enter key. Or you can just use a non-selection tool and, for example, fill or paint the selection.

Mode; Antialiasing; Feather edges

Common select options.

Rounded corners

If you enable this option, a slider appears. You can use this to adjust the radius that is used to round the corners of the selection.

Expand from center

If you enable this option, the point the selection is started by pressing the mouse button is used as center of the selected area.

크기 고정

이 메뉴를 통해 세 가지 다른 형태의 고정된 사각형 모양을 사용할 수 있습니다.

자유 선택

너비와 높이가 고정된 비율을 유지한 채 크기 조절이 되는 선택을 만듭니다.

고정된 크기

너비, 높이, 측정 단위가 고정된 선택을 만듭니다.

Height

With this choice you can fix the height of the selection.

크기

With this choice you can fix the width and height of the selection.

Position

These two text fields contain the current horizontal and vertical coordinates of the upper left corner of the selection. You can use these fields to adjust the selection position precisely.

크기

These two text fields contain the current width and height of the the selection. You can use these fields to adjust the selection size precisely.

Highlight

If you enable this option, the selected area is emphasized by a surrounding mask to make visual selection much easier.

Guides

With this menu you can select the type of guides that is shown within the selection to make the creation of a selection easier, respecting Photo composition rules.

Six options are available:

  • No Guides

  • Center lines

  • Rule of thirds

  • Rule of fifths

  • Golden sections

  • Diagonal lines

선택 자동 줄임

This option is active when a rectangle selection is drawn. Clicking on the Auto Shrink Selection button will make the selection automatically shrink to the nearest rectangular shape including elements in the selection. The algorithm for finding the best rectangle to shrink to is intelligent, which in this case means that it sometimes does surprisingly sophisticated things, and sometimes does surprisingly strange things. In any case, if the region that you want to select has a solid-colored surround, auto-shrinking will always pick it out correctly. Note that the resulting selection does not need to have the same shape as the one you sweep out.
