Select by Color restricted to a region
Hi, is it possible to select by color, where the new selection is a subset of a previously defined selection? I would use the magic wand tool, but many of the pixels I want in my selection are diagonal to each other, so I can't get many of the pixels with a single click.

- Click on the proper "Mode" icon in the Tool options (intersect is the rightmost one)

You can also do it the lazy way.

Thought'd I'd add some complimentary visuals

This could be a multi-purpose thread or image Smile
