    Copy all paths from JPEG and paste them into a PSD?

    Hi All, I have been searching around for this and I thought it would have been a common request. I have hundreds of JPEGs in a folder called 'JPEGs' and identical PSDs in a folder called 'PSDs'. I have sent out the JPEGs for pathing and I want to bring the paths from the JPEGs into the PSDs...

    Freeform Pen tool -- how to stop it from curving my path

    I'm trying to create a path using the freeform pen tool. When I have drawn the path and release the mouse button, photoshop cc automatically curves the path or even sometimes straightens it. I'm guessing/hoping there is a setting to prevent this and keep the path exactly as I drew it, but I...

    What I'm trying to do is create a 'adjustable frame', a top layer that acts just like a picture frame would for an actual picture.

    Odd pen tool behavior in CC 2015

    I use the pen tool regularly in CC 2015 and for whatever reason it's begun behaving oddly today. For instance, If I place an anchor point without handles on screen, then add a connecting path to another anchor point with handles and attempt to modify the path using the CTRL (CMD) key, a handle...

    Path tool Fill/Stroke options always grayed out

    I am having an issue with the fill/stroke options always grayed out whenever I use the paths tool. I cannot follow a single tutorial on any stroke path tutorial. There are about a dozen tutorials on how to do a dotted stroke, none of which work because they all tell me to use the fill/stroke...
