Paths

After we explored the differences between bitmapped graphics (made of pixels) and object-oriented, vector graphics (made of lines, curves, and other objects) back in Chapter 3, Image Essentials, we pretty much ignored the latter. If you're a typical Photoshop user, you, too, have likely focused most of your attention on pixels and let those wacky Illustrator users deal with the vectors. But Photoshop now lets you perform many of the tasks for which you might use an illustration or page-layout program. Plus, Photoshop's drawing tools can be very helpful even if you're a photographer or Web designer who usually ignores vector artwork, because vectors are infinitely modifiable, and they can easily be converted to bitmaps at the drop of a hat.
