Selection help??
Okay what I'm doing right now is trying to erase the background of many different photos and combine them (as different layers) into one image. I finished two layers and just as I was about get goin on my third layer, I made a mistake and did something to the threshold. I didn't remember what I had it on (well, it was on the default setting) so i put it back to 141 and decided to continue with my work. but then I realized that I couldn't select anything. No marching ants, nothing. What did I do wrong, and how can I put it back? The due date for this project is tomorrow, plz ehlp! (i know, I've been procrastinating).

RE: Selection help??
Which threshold? The one for the magic wand? Its default value is 15.

Use the [Image: attachment.php?aid=621] button at the bottom right of the Tools option dialog to reset the values.
