This tutorial focuses on using the Pen tool in Adobe Photoshop. It includes a 26-page printable pdf in which I cover the basics of the Pen tool and how to use it to create a silhouette from a photograph.

You will learn how to:

  • differentiate between vector and raster graphics
  • create and edit custom layer shapes
  • draw straight and curved paths with the Pen tool
  • edit points and segments on a path
  • save a path
  • create a silhouette from a photo using the Pen tool
This lesson includes:
  • A 26-page, full-color pdf with screen shots (in PS CS3) and step-by-step instructions for Adobe Photoshop users.
  • Over 25 “bonus tips” throughout the lesson.
  • 3 papers
  • 3 diecut ledger leaves
  • 1 quote
  • 2 photo corners
(Mini-Kit contents created by Katie Pertiet.)

You will need:
Adobe Photoshop (**This tutorial is NOT for Photoshop Elements Users**)
One photo with the subject in profile

If you know how to open your software, you can complete this lesson. I provide detailed instructions for every step, from opening the first file to saving your finished layout.

This is such a fantastic tutorial. Not only does it teach you how to use the pen tool, it gives you tips and techniques that will help you master the pen tool. Learning the pen tool will give you full control over your layouts and help you add that personal touch. You can create your own text paths and create your own masks based on people and objects in your photos. This tutorial definitely helped me take my scrapping to the next level and I fully recommend it to all Photoshop users.
