Photoshop Script: CenteredSelection

Centered Selection is a simple but neat little JavaScript for Photoshop CS+ that can be used to create a rectangular or elliptical centered selection while maintaining the aspect ratio (i.e. width and height of the selection stay the same). Several options can be changed like the feather amount and the padding around the selection, whether using Antialias or not, creating an inverse selection and if an alpha channel should be created from the selection. This script can save a lot of hassle when trying to create a centered selection (imagine all that shift-, control- and space-holding and pressing to resize and drag around the selection)! As always a screenshot says more than thousand words.

Tested on WinXp Photoshop CS2 and Mac OSX Photoshop CS! The script is Open Source so feel free to use, extend or modify it! If you add any new functionality, I’d love to hear about it!

    I was unable to get your wonderful script to work on a Mac under OS Tiger 10.4.7 using Photoshop CS2.

    Brad, did Photoshp gave you any error or other information why it didn’t run? The only exotic part about the script is the undocument code for creating a round selection.
