Using Vector Path and Path Scrubber

We're going to take a look at three more vector tools here. We're going to try out the Vector Path tool for adding a bit of an illustrative effect to a photograph and also the Redraw Path tool and the Path Scrubbers. So we'll start off with our Vector Path tool. Now again, over in the Vector toolset, you'll find this tool underneath the Pen tool. So click and hold on the Pen tool icon and choose Vector Path. Now, the idea behind the Vector Path tool is, rather than using the Pen tool where you're always clicking on points to just change direction, the Vector Path tool is kind of like sketching your drawing with the vector shape instead of using say, for example, the brush.

The advantage to this is that you've got complete control over it after the fact. Because it's a Vector Path, it's going to remain editable. Try doing the same kind of thing with the paintbrush in the Bitmap tools, it gets applied permanently to the image or to the layer you're work...
