About This Class

Photoshop for Lunch™ is a series of short video courses you can study in bite size pieces such as at lunchtime. In this course you'll learn to use the Pen tool (if you are already familiar with it, skip the first video) to make paths in Photoshop. You will learn to use the Combine, Subtract, Exclude and Intersect options to create complex shapes from multiple paths. You will also learn how to make a perfectly symmetrical shape using a reflected path. You will also learn how to save the shapes so they will always be available for you to use. These are the shapes we will create:

A very good exercise using the pen and all the features that allow for making custom shapes

Easy to follow in just the right size; doesn't overwhelm you with information that is too much to take in at once.
Great class, thank you! I learned a much easier way to combine shapes than what I have been using.
