Settings for the magic wand selection tool

The magic wand selection tool can be found at the "lasso"-tool group on the toolbox. There are two magic wand modes available that can be selected in the settings dialog.

If you choose the Tolerance mode then the magic wand selects all pixels that fit into the tolerance that is entered. The higher the tolerance limit the more different colors compared to the starting point are taken into the selected area.

The other mode will make the selected area to be limited by the current Background color. So you can easily pick up isolated screen elements.
