Painting paths

Paths and anchor points are non-printing elements of the image. Because the black lines you see on-screen as you draw with the Pen tool are paths—not strokes—they do not represent any pixels in the image. When you deselect a path, the anchor points and path are hidden.

You can make a path visible in your printed image by painting the stroke, which adds pixels to the image. Stroking paints color along the path. Filling paints the interior of a closed path by filling it with color, an image, or a pattern. To stroke or fill a path, you must first select it.
