A floating selection hovers above an image. You can move or modify it without affecting the underlying original image. Floating selections are surrounded by black-and-yellow marquees. You can create a floating selection by repositioning a standard selection with the Move Tool, by pasting the content of the clipboard into an image or by using the drag-and-drop features supported by ImageWarp. You can convert a floating selection into a standard one and merge it with the underlying image by using the Flatten command from the Edit menu. When necessary, ImageWarp automatically converts the type of the image in the floating selection into that of the underlying image.
