Lesson 10. Vector Drawing Techniques > Using paths with artwork

Using paths with artwork

You’ll start by using the Pen tool to make selections in the fanciful image of the flying saucer. The saucer has long, smooth, curved edges that would be difficult to select using other methods.

You’ll draw a path around the saucer and create two paths inside it. 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 is selected. Finally, you’ll make a new layer from the saucer image and change the image that appears behind it.
