In Photoshop, I want to use the patch tool but I want to select the area with a rectangular marquee instead of a lasso. How do I do this?

Google searches show how to use the marquee tool OR the patch tool. (sigh)

  • And apparently I don't have enough clout to add a 'patch-tool' tag and there isn't one already... Feb 3 '21 at 22:32

    Why do you need an exact rectangle? The point of the Path Tool is to merge edges, doing that on a strict rectangle would merely make the rectangle more visible after the patch.

  • Make your selection with the Rectangle Marquee tool

  • Switch to the Patch tool
