There are different types of pain tools as we can see but right now I’m using this first pen tool when you start drawing a path with the pen tool, I suggest you start it from Any Corner point of the object and take very few control points now click and drag it and you can see it moving handle of a control point. It bends the path as you can see.

Why Pen Tool

We can set our path properly with the help of this handle now click and drag for the next control point and bend its handle this way to set it properly. You can see here the path gets out of line because when drawing the previous control point we have bent its handle. So to overcome this problem just hold the ALT key and click on the last control point before you create a new one. It will remove the handle and allow you to draw the path properly continue drawing the path. Like this, let me speed this up.

I did not need it. So I’m deleting it. Here’s the path, which I have created before.

Click on it and see at the bottom of the path panel. There is an icon called load path as selection. WhatsApp Image 2020-08-30 at 5.54.36 PM.jpeg

By clicking on this icon. You can convert the path into a selection. So now select the layer and press Ctrl + J to create a new layer of the selected portion. WhatsApp Image 2020-08-30 at 5.54.49 PM.jpeg

Now draw the path that the edge of that hole and selected and delete it.Let me zoom in here here. You can see the edges of the object are still very sharp.                                                                                                                              WhatsApp Image 2020-08-30 at 5.56.45 PM.jpeg
