When it comes to Adobe Photoshop, I’m still working my way down the tools panel.
The Pen Tool is a HUGE topic so I’m only going to focus on 1 task that it can help you with.
You have to create a closed path using the Pen Tool. I like to lay down the anchor point I know are crucial to the shape first.
Once I have my closed path, I like to edit the path to match the shape I need.
Convert path to selection:
Mac: Comm + Return
Pc: Ctrl + Enter
