When I select a portion of a picture with the lasso tools or the wand tool why does the marching ants border still show after I’ve done what I wanted to do? I know you can get rid of them in the "view" menu but I can’t do anything else until those marching ants are truely gone.

I’ve tried hitting enter when I finish but it does nothing.

<Ctrl> + D will get rid of them a very useful short cut. Also >Select
Deselect from the menu works.

If you just want to hide the marching ants so that you can better see the effects you’re trying for, hit <Control> + H
