There’s more to Photoshop mastery than just pushing pixels. You also have to be comfortable working with vector paths and shapes. And the ability to work with shapes opens up all kinds of cool design possibilities. In his Lynda.com video course, Photoshop for Designers: Working with Shapes, Nigel French shows how Photoshop shapes are the “secret weapons” of great designers. Nigel also demonstrates working with the shape tools, and live shape properties, converting shapes to paths (and vice versa), as well as using blend modes, layer effects, and filters with shapes—and a lot more! In the free movie below, Nigel shows how to work with the Pen tool to create and edit paths in Photoshop. Check it out!
