Correct a free selection after finishing
I spent 1 hour looking for this in Google and none of the links provided me an answer. Sorry to spoil here but this is really a basic question.

I made a free selection in a photo with a great detail of zoon which took me a lot of time. When I pasted it I noticed that there is a small incorrection that I wanted to retouch.

However the original cut picture has the borders of the selected area brightening but doesn't show any longer the points that I could correct.

Any way of forcing it to edit, allowing me to change slightly the borders ?

Thanks

Sorry if it was not clear.

In a photo with several persons, I zoomed and used the Free Select Tool to cut around one of those persons. Idea was to copy it to another document.

That free selection was almost perfect, however I missed part of the hair.

During the free selection we are able to correct and adjust the points (do you understand what I mean ?) . However as soon as we connect the last point with the first, the selection becomes completed and I can't adjust the selection any longer. That's what I wanted to know.

Thanks a million Ofnuts. That worked perfectly !

A final question. After free selecting the person I copied that into another empty image with white backgroud.

What's the easiest way now to turn the white into a different color ? Should be easy because is a picture in a simple empty white background, no ?
