Join Daniel Lieske for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding a stroke to paths, part of Drawing and Painting in Photoshop - The Great Training.
- The Shift key helps us to draw straight lines…with our Brush tool.…But how about curved lines,…can we do those too?…Yes, we can, with a little trick.…We will use the Pen tool…to create a vector path.…If we just click on the canvas with the Pen tool,…the different points…are connected with straight lines…but if we click and drag…we can expand these little handles…and with those we can create…a nice curved line.…
We can then use the Direct Selection tool…to adjust the different points…of our path…until it looks…the way we want it to look.…Now we have the path…and we will open up…the Path palette and a window path,…and here we have our path,…it's called Work Path.…And we have a few options here at the bottom.…And the option that's interesting for us right now…is the Stroke path with brush option.…
So I select my Brush tool again,…that's this one,…and I can now click Stroke path with brush,…and voila,…we have a nice curved line…drawn with our Brush tool…with the help…of this vector path.…And we can now adjust the path…and we can then stroke it again,…
