In Adobe Photoshop, the pen tool is frequently made use of in the creations of smooth-edged selections, yet is not a type of selection tool. The Pen Tool develops vector paths that can be converted into selections that in turn can be utilized to extract or mask group of pixels.
Photoshop provides several Pen tools. The basic Pen tool draws with the greatest accuracy; the Freeform Pen tool draws paths as if you were drawing with pencil theoretically, and the magnetic pen option lets you draw a path that snaps to the sides of defined areas in your image. You could utilize the pen tools along with the shape tools to create difficult shapes. When you use the standard Pen tool, the following with options are available in the options bar:
Note: Prior to drawing with the Pen tool, you could create a new path in the Paths panel to automatically save the work path as a named path.
In order to help familiarize yourself with the pen tool, I'm going to take you through a collection of examples that will show you the best ways to draw and also produce some custom-made shapes.
To begin, Create a New File (I'm using 284 × 284 in my instance, with default Photoshop Preferences). Next, let's allow the Grid. Go to View > Show > Grid, or Ctrl + '. Also Enable Snap (View > Snap, or "Shift + Ctrl +;").
We enable grid + snapping so that when we draw utilizing the pen tool, we could quickly make specific shapes, and curves with little effort.
Select a foreground color of your choice.
You could have already observed that something fascinating when drawing curves, and dragging after clicking to develop an anchor point. The lines start to curve!
When you see the icon become a pointer that suggests that I'm DRAGGING once i create a point.
Let's take exactly what we've discovered until now, and use it in some standard design. If you're making use of the same sized file as I am (with default Photoshop grid choices), you must be able to Copy + Paste these templates in your file, and also follow my anchor points quickly.
The Rounded Rectangle Forming usages basic curves, and also is really simple to create. With some minor adjustments, we could make rectangular shapes with only 1, 2, or 3 of the corners rounded, while keeping the rest sharp edges.
"S" curves are used all the time in more complicated shapes. They are created by dragging the Directional Points of 2 siblings anchor points in in same direction.
Making an exact duplicate of this shape will certainly need you to have some understanding of the "Convert Point Tool" as well. As soon as your points are made, return with the Convert Point Tool, click a point, then click and drag out the point so that you can manually customize the direction manages for customized curves.
