Hi! welcome to the another tutorial by sanweng.com. In this tutorial, I will show you how to use the Pen Tool. So to start you can use either the keyboard shortcut P or come to the icon where it says Pen Tool. So there are two different ways to make a path. The first one is Shape Layer and the Path.
So let's try the Shape Layer first. Let's Click on our first point, hold your mouse and drag it out. You will notice that there is this handle, this handle controls the curvature of your path. So Click on your second point, hold it and drag it out and you will notice that you can control the curve with this handle, with the second handle.
And then let's Click on it again, and again but you will notice, we need a sharper edge or sharper corner here. So in order to make a sharp corner, hold the Alt and Command, Alt or Command button, or Alt or Option button. And you'll see that your mouse turns into a triangle when it's pointing right at the candle. So let's move it around and move this one around, see now you have a sharper edge here and then so keep going.
If you accidentally make your point too far or in a wrong position, hold the Ctrl or the Command key and you will see your mouse turned into a arrow. Now you can move it around like this, so move it back to the right position. You can also add points if you need, by just simply clicking on anywhere on the path. When you put your mouse over the path you'll see there, there is a plus button next to the pen icon, so click on it and now you have an extra point. And I am going to hold Ctrl option to move it to the right position or if you don't want that point and you decided not to keep that point or any of the point, just point your mouse right at the anchor point and you'll see there is extra minus sign next to the Pen button.
So now when you Click on it the anchor point disappears. And when you are done, you can just click on the original spot and now you have a shape layer. You can control the opacity, Double Click the icon to change the color or hide it. And then, if you want to turn that into a selection, just hold the Ctrl Command button, while selecting the layer. So now it becomes a selection, let me Copy and Paste that so you can see better.
Now let's do the second method which is the Path. So let's start drawing again you will notice that nothing happens here. There is no new layer that's being created as we are doing this, so let me finish. So in order for you to manipulate this or make a use out of it, you need to go to the Path Palette. And you will see there is a Work Path, that's the path that you just made. So Click Ctrl or Command and just select that and that becomes the selection. There are also some Options that you can use.
If you select it, you can Fill Path, fill it with color or create stroke around it. Make selection which is what we already did. And let's go back, the good thing about this Path is, when you save this file as a JPEG, this path will come with the JPEG. So, if you import it to a different computer that path will still be there. So that is it for now and if you want to it see more detail description of the Pen Tool, please go to my website at www.sanweng.com.
