Learn how to use the Adobe mobile app Capture CC to capture a shape from an image, and then save it as a Photoshop custom shape.
- I'm going to use the Adobe Capture app to capture a shape.…In fact, I'm going to take one of my photographs…from my camera roll and have that be defined…as a vector shape.…It's going to end up in one of my libraries…and then using Illustrator, I can just clean up that shape…and then copy and paste it into Photoshop…and define it as a custom shape.…So, let's see how that works.…Currently, no shapes in my library.…I'm going to click on the plus…and that's going to take me to my live preview…and so I could point my camera at something…and take a picture or as I'm going to do, I can just click…on the bottom right to access my camera roll.…
And down in an album,…I have a picture of one of my cats.…Always a good subject when creating shapes.…Because this is a dark image on a dark background,…I'm going to click on the top center icon…and then using the slider down at the bottom,…Capture is going to recognize the shape.…And now, I need to move that slider.…In this case, all the way to the right.…So, I'm going to click the green button…
