Lesson 9. Basic Pen Tool Techniques > Drawing curved paths

Drawing curved paths

Curved paths are created by clicking and dragging. The first time you click and drag, you set a starting point for the curved path and also determine the direction of the curve. As you continue to drag, a curved path is drawn between the previous point and the current point.

When you drag the Pen tool, Photoshop draws direction lines and direction points from the anchor point. You can use these direction lines and points to adjust the shape and direction of the curve. You’ll edit paths using the direction lines and direction points after you practice drawing curved paths.
