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.

You can also do it the lazy way.

Thought'd I'd add some complimentary visuals
