selection not hard when erasing - Adobe Photoshop 7, CS, CS2 & CS3

Hi, I want to erase part of an image. First, I select the object I don't want to erase with the magic wand tool. I invert the selection. When I use the eraser it seems to work. But when I zoom in to pixel level, I see that pixels are erased inside the selection. (not much and only at the border) How can this be????? Am I missing the general concept?...

    Default selection not hard when erasing

    Hi,

    I want to erase part of an image.

    First, I select the object I don't want to erase with the magic wand tool. I invert the selection.

    When I use the eraser it seems to work. But when I zoom in to pixel level, I see that pixels are erased inside the selection. (not much and only at the border) How can this be?????

    The effect of the magic wand is subtle. What it actually selects obviously depends upon where you click - it will select pixels of teh same colour. The tolerance setting determines how far "out" a colour may be and still get selected. If you have "anti-aliased" checked, you will get fuzzy edges on your selection. I think this last point is key to you.

    Yes you are right, thank you. It was the anti-aliasing.
