Join Daniel Lieske for an in-depth discussion in this video Straight lines with Shift key, part of Drawing and Painting in Photoshop - The Great Training.
- Selections give us a lot of control…over areas of color application,…but what about our line work?…Drawing straight lines is a matter of practice.…And with a little bit of practice,…you will be able to draw pretty straight lines…with a graphic tablet.…But depending on the angle of the line,…you will find that even with a lot of practice,…you will end up with a little bit skewed lines.…
So, Photoshop supports us with a nice little feature here,…everyone to create really straight lines.…We using the shift key to do it.…And if you click on the canvas with the Brush tool,…then hold the shift key.…The next click will be connected with a straight line.…This is really handy if you want to create very technical…and precise drawings.…
And there's another use of the shift key…when you are drawing freehand.…If you're drawing straight lines freehand…and you hit the shift key while you're drawing,…your line will end up perfectly straight.…And the only thing is, what you've seen here,…that you really have to make sure to click and draw…
