Photoshop Tip of the Day
Tip #35. Don’t be afraid of the Pen tool. What freaks some folks out is that you aren’t creating a selection with the Pen tool. You are creating a path. After you create a path, go to the Paths tab in the Layers panel. Control-click or right-click on the Work Path that is there. Choose Make Selection and then click on OK in the pop-up window that appears. Poof! Marching ants will appear where the path was. You will have to go back to the layers panel, select Layers, and make sure the correct layer is active before you take action.
