It seems like it could be a very simple task, but I cannot find a solution. I'm trying to make a selection between 4 guide points. Is there any way at all to make selections from guides automatically (without just using a Marquee tool)- or am I asking too much?

    The problem becomes that guides span the entire canvas.. so how would the app know which side of the guide you want to use? Drag 4 guides and there are 8 regions... how would Photoshop know which specific region(s) you want as a selection? – Scott Oct 3 '19 at 17:34
  • Hi. Welcome to GDSE. This seems to be an XY Problem. Can I ask what are you actually trying to achieve by making a selection in such a way? Why is using the marquee tool problematic for you? – Billy Kerr Oct 4 '19 at 0:03
