Deleting selections

While the Eraser is an effective tool to use to remove items from a layer, it can be a bit cumbersome when you're looking to erase something specific without ruining the surrounding artwork. Conversely, you may find it too small to work with if you have a large area to remove.

That's where you may find using a selection to delete an area useful. Whether it's to select a small specific area or a large one, you'll find it a helpful alternative to quickly removing an offending object from your artwork. (See Figure 9-19.)
