Learn how to apply fill and stroke properties to Photoshop shapes
- We're going to look at the Fill and Stroke properties…of our shape layers.…In the case of the rectangle and the ellipse,…I can come and click on my Properties panel…and I will see, because these are Live shapes,…my Fill and my Stroke and my Stroke White,…but in the case of the triangle or polygon,…when I choose that,…I don't see those same properties.…So for that reason, I'm going to use my Path Selection tool…and when you're in your Path Selection tool,…regardless of whether it's a regular shape…or a Live shape, you'll see your Fill and your Stroke…on your Tool Options bar.…
Beginning with the rectangle,…an easy way to change the color…is just to double click on the layer thumbnail…or we can use the Fill dropdown…and we can also access the Color Picker…by clicking on this swatch…or we can choose from our existing swatches.…So the ellipse, I'm going to apply a gradient.…You can edit the gradient here.…You can change the type of gradient…and you can choose whatever colors are available…from the gradients that you have loaded.…
