Want to spend more time playing with your dogs, and less time editing photos? I'm all about constantly improving, tweaking, and speeding up my workflow so I can spend that saved time doing other things.

During a long editing session, those seemingly little jobs that you find yourself doing to multiple images really adds up. Making selections of random objects to remove from photos is one of those repetitious and fiddly jobs that can really slow your editing process down.

Photoshop is continually improving how their tools work and I've been noticing how much better the Object Selection tool seems to be working with recent updates. Coupled with one must-have keyboard shortcut, using this tool can help you cut down your editing time, big time!
