Lesson 8. Vector Shapes and Clipping Paths

Lesson 8. Vector Shapes and Clipping Paths


You can make simple illustrations using vector paths in Adobe Photoshop or Adobe ImageReady. Working with vectors allows you to create shapes, which can be filled or stroked, and use clipping paths to control what is shown in an image. This lesson will introduce you to advanced uses of vector shapes and clipping paths.


In this lesson, you'll learn how to do the following:

  • Differentiate between bitmap and vector graphics.

  • Use clipping paths to control what's shown in a layer.

  • Create a logo using vector shapes and clipping paths.

  • Work with text in Photoshop.

  • Use actions and styles to re-create a vector graphic.

This lesson will take about 60 minutes to complete. The lesson is designed to be done in Adobe Photoshop, but information on using similar functionality in Adobe ImageReady is included where appropriate.

If needed, remove the previous lesson folder from your hard drive, and copy the Lesson08 folder onto it from the Adobe Photoshop Classroom in a Book CD.

Note

Windows users need to unlock the lesson files before using them. For more information, see "Copying the Classroom in a Book files".
