    How can I select the whole image, without the background,
    if I clear all it's background
    (i.e : earth without background is circle.
    I want to match the selection exactly of the size of the earth).

    Thanks :)

    It's depending on how well you have mastered your tool. You can pick your

    1. Using PEN TOOL as some people are talking about Pen Tool at the moment.
    And you should READ other topics to learn more which is more useful than
    asking too many question which you may end up learning none. Or it may take
    weeks or months for an average user with lot of practice to be able to learn
    (I mean well learn) a simple command, when you have been asking several
    daily. Unless you try to collect the answer to write a book or something.

    2. Wizard which is less powerful than Pen Tool

    3. Masking, this is a different type of masking I mentioned earlier which
    may require the combination of Pen Tool, Marking, Channel, and quite a few
    other basic commands.

    And you may finish with the Masking Command I have been talking about in
    the past few days (or in the past several months). Yes, there are few
    different Masking techinques one you create the Masked File and one you use
    the Mask Command to apply directly to the layer(s) without creating a Masked

    if you have the earth on a seperate layer, ctrl click on the layer (in the
    layers palette)
    otherwise use the magic wand to select everything but the earth, inverse the
    selection and hit ctrl-J

    Mask is just like another tool, and it depends on how well you know mask.
