Chapter 11. Using the Paths Palette > Creating Paths Using the Freeform Pen Too...

Creating Paths Using the Freeform Pen Tool

Where the Pen tool requires you to click and move your mouse, the Freeform Pen tool lets you drag on the screen to create any desired path. When you create a path with the Freeform tool, Photoshop adds anchor points to the line at predefined intervals. The distance between anchor points is determined by a value called a Curved Fit. The more complicated the design, the more anchor points the Freeform Pen Tool must create to support the path. Once created, you can always modify the path or even add or subtract anchor points.
