When I select a portion of a picture with the lasso tools or the wand tool why does the marching ants border still show after I've done what I wanted to do? I know you can get rid of them in the "view" menu but I can't do anything else until those marching ants are truely gone.

I've tried hitting enter when I finish but it does nothing.

<Ctrl> + D will get rid of them a very useful short cut. Also >Select
>Deselect from the menu works.

Creativity is so delicate a flower that praise tends to make it bloom, while
discouragement often nips it in the bud. Any of us will put out more and
better ideas if our efforts are appreciated.

If you just want to hide the marching ants so that you can better see the effects you're trying for, hit <Control> + H
