About This Class

I really enjoyed this course. I have always been intimidated in using the pen tool but now that Dawid has made it so easy to understand, I am happy to give it lots of tries! A great teacher. He explains things that a beginner can understand. Please keep the courses coming. I want to learn more!

Pen Tool in Photoshop can help you with creating shapes and, especially, making fast and precise selections.

But learning it can be a discouraging and dissapointing process if you don't know how to do it the right way.

If you are one of those students who wanted to learn the Pen Tool in Photoshop, but got discouraged or frustrated with it, take a look at this class.

Inside you will find:

  • all the tips and techniques that will allow you to use the Pen Tool effortlessly
  • the best techniques on how to make precise selections using the Pen Tool and the Freeform Pen Tool
  • most helpful shortcuts to start using the Pen Tool like a real pro designer

But you will get more than that: say goodbye to all your frustrations and disappointment you can often get when watching tutorials that get you nowhere.

So hop on board and join the happy community of students who have already experienced my teaching method: simple, straight to the point and with a smile.

See you inside!


PS If you like the class, please submit your review and class project.  It will help other students, just like you interested in topic I teach, in finding my classes. Thanks!

As i am watching this class on aug 2018 & using photoshop cc 2018, hence can clearly say that, This class was recorded way earlier may be in 2010-12. And the photoshop version used is also way older. But having said that, there is still relevant info out there and one ting i liked the most about dawid sir, that he kept the videos shot 3-5 min [max] so that we can easily practise what is being taught. I already knew how pen tool works but watched the course for more insightful infor which i surely got. Things such as magnetic freeform pen tools and switching between different tools while on pen with shortcuts were some key point which i have taken from the class. Overall a nice class. Learned some new techniques and improved myself as a designer. I definately recommend this class to someone who wanna learn to use pen tool in photohsop in a very basic manner [as this is a basic course nothing advace here] Thanks & Regards Mohit Verma
