Chapter 4. Layers and Channels > Shapes and Clipping Paths

Shapes and Clipping Paths

Adobe Systems wants every user to get with the program and start using the power of vector paths in Photoshop, right from Day One. Okay, suppose it's Day Two or Three with you and Photoshop; we are still going to show you the easiest way to start using vector paths. Paths travel under the guise of something called shapes in version CS; they are pre-made paths that you can fill, stroke, base a selection upon, and so forth. And shapes are simply a way to start understanding the relationship between vectors and designs that are filled with pixels. Shapes are a sort of vector container for the bitmap rendering you do in Photoshop.

So without further ado, let's play with some pre-made shapes we've created for you on the CD (they're really cool), and discover the different relationships vector graphics have with Photoshop CS features.
