How to use the Pen Tool in Photoshop

Get the Infographic here:

By far the most requested tutorial on f.64 Academy is How to use the Pen Tool in Photoshop? For the longest time I kept saying, ughhh, gosh, the freakin' Pen Tool, not another request for that. If you have ever used it, you know exactly what I am talking about and have probably said even worse expletives in front of Pen Tool.

The reason I kept putting this tutorial off is because it is probably the most difficult tool to master in Photoshop. Trust me, this is coming from someone with over 18 years of experience pushing pixels in Photoshop. I'd place an Anchor Point and move on to the next one and it wouldn't be straight or the line would be so warped I'd scream out every expletive known to man. Really, it would happen that quickly, from 0 - 60, instant Pen Tool hatred. I even watched three or four tutorials that tried to show me how to use it. No luck.

That is until I started doing what anyone who has been in Photoshop for longer than 6 years does, hit CTRL, ALT, or SHIFT as I made my adjustments. If you are wondering how to do something easier in Photoshop, consult with the three wise men before heading to Google, CTRL, ALT, and SHIFT. These are the main hotkeys that often make your life a lot easier when you are bouncing around in PS.

For example:

Pressing ALT while clicked on the Burn tool will automatically switch it to the Dodge Tool (and vise versa).

Pressing CTRL while using the Type Tool will switch you over to the move tool on the fly for fast moving of text.

Pressing SHIFT while Cropping will maintain the original aspect ratio of the image.

Of all of the tools in Photoshop, the Pen Tool requires the most knowledge of hotkeys. With other tools, you can use them for centuries without really needing to know the hotkeys. That is not the case with the Pen Tool, the hotkeys are necessities unless you enjoy ripping your hair out and kicking the closest inanimate object to you.

In today's tutorial, I will show you everything you need to know to get good with the Pen Tool. However, it will take practice and LOTS of it to really get a good grip on it. We will discuss:

The most important Hot Keys to know when using the Pen Tool (see below)
How to use the Pen Tool effectively and efficiently
How to modify Anchor Points
How to turn Pen Tool objects into Custom Shapes
How to turn Pen Tool Shapes into selections
How to use Vector Masks with Pen Tools

Make selections with the Pen Tool - Photoshop Tutorial - PSD Box

Learn how to subtract objects from the background using the Pen Tool, how to turn a selection into a path.
I'll also show you an awesome tip for how to save paths on JPG files so that you don't have to spend time extracti the image everytime you open in Photshop.

An Ultimate Guide For PEN TOOL In Photoshop [For Beginners]

THE PEN TOOL IN PHOTOSHOP - AN ULTIMATE GUIDE FOR BEGINNERS

The PEN TOOL creates VECTOR PATHS that can be later converted into a variety of things.

The Keyboard shortcut to access the Pen tool directly is the letter ‘P’.

SECONDARY TOOLS:

1. ADD ANCHOR POINT TOOL:

The Add Anchor Point Tool is used to add an anchor point on the path as per your need.

2. DELETE ANCHOR POINT TOOL:

In contrast to the ‘Add Anchor Point Tool’, the ‘Delete Anchor Point Tool’ deletes the anchor point that you are not in need of.

(To access the ‘Add Anchor Point Tool’ and ‘Delete Anchor Point Tool’ automatically, select your Pen Tool and you will see ‘Auto Add/Delete’ checkbox. Just have it checked.)

3. CONVERT POINT TOOL:

The primary use of the convert point tool is to either introduce handles to the anchor point that does not have any handles or to delete handles from the anchor point that already has handles.

You can access the Convert Point directly by just holding the ALT button on Windows or the OPTION button on Mac.

SELECTION TOOLS:

The Pen Tool and Selection Tools go hand in hand.

Just use the Keyboard Shortcut – ‘A’ to access the Selection Tool directly.

There are two types of Selection Tools – Path Selection Tool and Direct Selection Tool.

The Path Selection Tool is used to select a complete path whereas the Direct Selection Tool is used to select a particular anchor point.

To access the Selection Tools, just hold down the CTRL button on Windows or the COMMAND button on Mac.


TIPS FOR BEGINNERS:

1. If you are very new to Photoshop, the Pen Tool will seem like Rocket science to you. To make it easier to learn, Photoshop has one great feature.

With the Pen Tool selected, you will see the Gear Icon in the Options Bar.

This is the ‘Path Options’.

Click on it to see the ‘Rubber Band’ option. Leave it checked.
With the Rubber Band option checked, just create an anchor point and you will see that it traces you the path before you create another anchor point.

This is going to be of immense help to you.

2. To make a perfect selection, always zoom in to the maximum as this will help you cover all the minute details.

3. Lesser anchor points create perfect paths. So, avoid creating anchor points where there is no need for it.

APPLICATIONS OF THE PEN TOOL:

There are three basic applications of the Pen Tool.

As you know now - Pen Tool is used to creating vector paths around objects.

This path can be converted to make three things out of it –

1. You can make a selection out of the path.

2. You can make a mask out of it.

3. And finally, you can make a selection out of it.

So, this is all about the Pen Tool.
