Lesson 9. Basic Pen Tool Techniques > Using paths with artwork

Using paths with artwork

Now that you’ve had some practice using the templates, you’ll use the Pen tool to make selections in the fanciful image of a flying saucer traveling through outer space. The saucer has long, smooth, curved edges that would be difficult to select using other methods.

You’ll draw a path around the image and create two paths inside the image. After you’ve drawn the paths, you’ll convert them to selections. Then you’ll subtract one selection from the other so that only the saucer and none of the starry sky are selected. Finally, you’ll make a new layer from the saucer image and change the image that appears behind it.
