    Problems with Photoshop 'paste in place'


    Hello,

    Can somebody please help me, I'm having problems with 'paste in place' command In Photoshop CS5.

    When I make a selection using either the rectangular or elliptical marquee tool, cut, then paste in place the selection is pasted to a new layer but with what appears to be a very fine (about 1 pixel) transparent stroke around it!

    How can I avoid this happening?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated

    Hi,
    This is your "feather value" that wise transparent stroke around it your selection image.

    To avoid this problem,
    Go to your option bar and set the feather value to "0px", now select the image what ever tool you like, and paste in place.

    After making your selection, you can go to Layers>New>Layer via Copy. Easier yet is the shortcut:
    Ctrl+J or cmd+J

    You can also cut your selection out of the current layer and put it in a new layer. This is Shift+Ctrl+J.
