That's how you do it, pardner.

The Lasso tool allows a selection to be made by drawing a freeform outline. This tool is useful for selecting with gesture-like motions, and to follow contours.

In the toolbox, the Lasso is grouped with the Polygonal Lasso and the Magnetic Lasso

ControlsEdit

Like the Brush, the Lasso can be used in a segmented mode by holding down Alt/Option. While using the modifier key, clicking will designate an endpoint for a new segment; releasing the modifier key will complete the selection. This is similar to the function of the Polygonal Lasso.
