Adobe Photoshop has a new tool called ‘Object Selection Tool’ that is designed to accelerate your selection workflow. It is available from Photoshop version 21.0 onwards, and is placed above the Quick Selection and Magic Wand tools in the tool bar.
To use, just select the tool and click and drag over the object in your photo. Using Adobe Sensei machine learning, the tool will shrink wrap the object with the selection. You can also select parts of an object, or use the lasso marquee to select discontinuous objects.
The Object Selection Tool is also placed in the Select and Mask workspace so you can refine your selection using different tool options and sliders.
