Chapter 37. Drawing Tools and Techniques > The Drawing Tools and Their Options

The Drawing Tools and Their Options

Like other tools, the Draw and Preset Shapes tools have options that you can set to change their behavior. All line styles and shapes can be created as either vectors or bitmaps. In this chapter I'll describe the bitmap behavior.

The Draw tool has four styles. You can draw Single lines that are straight and go from one point on your image to another; Bézier curves, which can be manipulated as vectors, even with the Create as Vector box unchecked; Freehand curves, which cannot be changed after you've drawn them (unless you create them as vectors); and Drawing lines, which are the most flexible and behave like Bézier curves on steroids. In this chapter I'll cover Single lines and Freehand curves and touch on Bézier curves.
