Curious as to the difference between the Magic Wand Tool and the Quick Selection Tool? They may seem very similar, but there are a few key differences that can help you out in your projects!

Tools used in this tutorial:
Magic Wand Tool: This selection method helps you select areas of a similar color. When you click with the Magic Wand, Photoshop will select connecting areas that are of the same color, based on the tolerance (which is set on the Options Bar). The higher the tolerance value, the more will be selected.
Quick Selection Tool: This selection method works very similar to a brush, allowing you to brush over the areas you wish to turn into a selection. By default, every stroke adds to your selection. If you wish to deselect some areas, hold down your Alt (Windows) or Option (Mac) key and brush.
