Lesson 9. Basic Pen Tool Techniques > Stroking and filling paths

Stroking and filling paths

Earlier in this lesson, you used the Stroke command on the Paths palette menu to create colored pixels on straight paths. You can stroke or fill paths by dragging a named path onto one of the special buttons at the bottom of the Paths palette. To designate the painting options you want to apply to a path, you’ll select a painting tool and paint options before you drag the path onto the appropriate button in the Paths palette.

Note

These buttons on the Path palette apply painting to the entire set of subpaths associated with that path. To apply painting to only some of the subpaths, use the Stroke command instead. See “Painting paths” on page 306.
