Creating Vector Shape Object in Photoshop

posted by Audee | Sunday, June 10, 2007

Step 1 - Separate the object from its background

Select your desired image figure or image object. Just make sure that your object selection is having a perfect shape, because you won't need the entire image element to create this shape vector object.

Hence, delete its background to do so.

Step 2 - Creating paths from the selected object

Remember not to deselect your object after you have separated it from its background. Keep the selection area on, then press Delete.

After you have empty selection area, use Paint Bucket Tool to fill it with black color. This is a very useful trick to make a clear and clean vector shape object.

Go to the Sub Menu Bar and check your custom path object. If you have followed this tutorial in a good way, I make sure you would be able to create vector graphics using your own custom path object as you like. ; )
