How to Build Complex Shapes in Photoshop CC

Image
One of things that you can do in Photoshop CC is to build complex shapes with ease. All you need to know is how to perform Step and Repeat command plus what are the available options for Path operations and how to combine shapes. There are and other useful time saving options and shortcuts, but I want to keep it simple for now. This tutorial should give you a base knowledge and idea how to build complex shapes when you need them and you do not have access to Adobe Illustrator.

First thing first: think how to build shapes, not how to draw them The first thing I want to point is to think how to build shapes, not how to draw them because that will make your life much easier. Most of shapes that you may ever need is easy to create by combining few primitive geometric shapes like lines, circles, rectangles...

In this step by step tutorial I will use nothing else but Ellipse Tool. I am going to manipulate with circle and ellipse using Path operations and Combine Shapes plus Step and Repeat

Using PSD Files and Generator to Create Site in Adobe Muse

Image
One of the great things in Adobe Muse is integration with Photoshop. I already posted: How to Import Photoshop button in Adobe Muse,but that's not the only way to use convenience of good integration. First of all you can use File > Place command to import Photoshop's PSD files. In fact, you can import composite images or individual layers with option: Clip To Layer Contents which will trim any extra space or pixels which are not part of the layer which you want to import. Second: you can always replace already placed files/images from Assets panel and you can use layered PSD files for replacement. The trick for replacement is to choose: Photoshop Images (psd) from the drop down list at the bottom right side of the Relink dialog (right/Cmd + click on the asset in Assets panel and choose Relink). That's only beginning or introduction to start with. The true power of integration and convenience available in Photoshop CC is when you start using Generator combined with clon…
