My friend Katie didn’t even know there was a Direct Selection Tool in Adobe Photoshop =D
(Shout Out to Mrs. Katie)
Check out the video above to see how it works.
In the video, I forgot to mention that you can temporarily switch between the Direct Selection Tool and the Path Selection Tool. This comes in handy once you get the idea of how these tools work. All you have to do is hold down “Comm” on a MAC or “Ctrl” on a PC. While you hold down that key, you will temporarily swap tools. Once you release the key, the original tool is returned.
The Direct Selection Tool is in the same stack as the Path Selection Tool.
The Direct Selection Tool allows you to target portions of your path. A path is made up of Segments, Anchor Points and Bezier Handles, this tool works with all of them.
