Defining your own custom shape

Defining your own custom shape: No Drawing Necessary: Custom Shapes in Photoshop
Defining your own custom shape: No Drawing Necessary: Custom Shapes in Photoshop

In this video, learn how to draw a custom star—or blast—shape with the Pen tool. As well as edit that star with the White Arrow—or, if you prefer, Direct Selection tool. By default, the Pen tool draws path outlines that live in the Paths panel. To turn a selected path into a custom shape, choose Edit > Define Custom Shape. After that, you can deploy your predrawn path again and again from the Shapes panel.
