    I am attempting to outline a section of a photo using the Magnetic
    Lasso Tool in PS7 so that I can subsequently blur the background.

    Having selected this tool I start at the bottom LH edge of the photo
    and eventually get to the bottom RH edge .

    The problem I now have is I don't know how to deselect this Tool. As a
    result , if I attempt to move the curser up to the Tool icon in order
    to click it again ( thus , I thought , deselecting it ) this merely
    results in bringing the " thread " all across the photo in all the
    wrong places .

    How , once the use of this Lasso tool is complete , do you deselect it
    thus leaving the threaded area as desired ?

  3. You have to close the selection first. CTRL+click usually does the trick.
    After that, if you're unhappy with any area of the selection you can
    add/subtract from the selection by selectiong the icons on the toolbar.
