Doing a selective "checkout" using SourceTree

Is there a way in SourceTree to do a selective file checkout as described on this page: http://jasonrudolph.com/blog/2009/02/25/git-tip-how-to-merge-specific-files-from-another-branch/

I wasn't able to find any equilavent workflow in SourceTree, since merging from another branch automatically takes all files.

Yes, there is a way to do this from SourceTree. Push the "Terminal" button at the top of the window.

That's not helpful. I'm looking for a GUI where I can review available commits and select the ones which I want to checkout.
