Select Opaque
Select all opaque (non-transparent) pixels in the current active layer. If there’s already a selection, this will add the new selection to the old one, allowing you to select the opaque pixels of multiple layers into one selection. Semi-transparent (or semi-opaque) pixels will be semi-selected.
Feather Selection
Feathering in design means to soften sharp borders. So this adds a soft border to the existing selection.
Grow Selection
Make the selection a few pixels bigger.
Shrink Selection
Make the selection a few pixels smaller.
Border Selection
Take the current selection and remove the insides so you only have a border selected.
Make the selection a little smoother. This removes jiggle.
