Drag from Illustrator to Make a Path in Photoshop

If you know that you need a path in Photoshop, you can avoid the Paste dialog (see previous tip) by dragging-and-dropping an object from Illustrator into a Photoshop document. Just select your object with the Selection tool (V), hold down the Command key (PC: Control key) to override the Paste dialog, and drag-and-drop the object into your Photoshop document to automatically create a path. To ensure that your object was converted to a path in Photoshop, choose Paths from the Window menu. You should see a Work Path created in the palette for you. (In our example, the copied path was stroked with a brush in Photoshop after we selected Stroke Path from the Paths palette’s flyout menu.)
