How do you select an image yourself? Like define the border yourself. The magic wand tool isn't really being helpfull at the moment and the Marque tool can't be used in this case.

I'm a bit confused with what you're asking...

but you know there are a bunch of selection tools in CS3 right? Left click and hold down to get the menus to expand. I use a ton of selection tools, but typically it's the polygonal lasso...

But yeah, the 3rd, 4th and 5th buttons on the bar are all selection tools.

You can also click ctrl + A and it'll pick the whole image, is that what you mean?

selections can be turned into masks, and vice versa, which is something i do all the time.

I just paint a mask when I really need to control it. Hell, I usually touch up auto selections with the mask tool.
