In this brief exercise, I'm going to show you how to save out your custom path outline as a custom shape that you can draw over and over again, it's so easy to do, but it's definitely worth knowing. I have got my Heart shape path selected here inside the Paths palette. So you want to switch over to Paths palette in order to make it active and, of course, I have gone ahead and saved my progress as Final heart shape.jpg. How do we go about saving this path outline as a custom shape? With the path selected, it's very important that the path is selected here in the Paths palette, go up to the Edit menu and choose Define Custom Shape right there, and then you will have the option of naming that shape and I'm going to go ahead and call it Organic Heart or something like that because it is a little more organic.
