- Stroke path
Difficulty: Easy. You can use your own images for this tutorial. Any image will do.
Canvas area matte
Open your image in Adobe Photoshop.
Create your canvas area matte (Image > Canvas Size). I use light gray for the canvas color to make the fish look brighter.
Select the Rectangle Path Tool and draw just inside the image.
Select the Brush tool . You can choose any brush you want and the effect you get will depend on the brush you choose. Try to experiment with different brushes and brush sizes. Make sure the matte color is the foreground color of your brush. Now you are ready to stroke the path.
If you do not see the Path palette, select Window > Paths from the top menu. Click on the little triangle icon in the upper right corner of the Path palette and select Stroke Path.
See you next time. Make sure to come back for more tutorials.
