    Fading the edges of a shape!

    I'm trying to fade the edges (not centre) of a shape which i have done so far through layer masking with the gradient tool and then inverting the mask. It is rather difficult however to centre the gradient properly so that it fades out equally in each direction. Is there an easier way to do this?

    Photoshop CS6 brush and eraser tools are streaking across the active layer. Incredibl

    Video of the issue I'm having: The video only shows the issue when using the brush tool. However, the exact same thing is happening when I use the eraser tool. It will erase a long streak across what layer is active. I've tried Googling this issue, and haven't come up with anything. Does...

    No refine edge option in Quick Selection tool

    I am using PS CC 2017. I am trying to select two objects in a photo to blur a background. I am using the Quick selection tool, which works fine, except at the top over the photo, there is no option for "refine edge", as I have seen in online tutorials. As you can see by my attachment, the...

    Gradient tool & layer mask

    I'm having a problem with this. I was watching a tutorial where the person used a layer mask on the a layer image then used gradient tool on the layer mask however when I do this, the gradient doesn't apply on the layer mask. I believe they were using cs6 while I'm using cs3. Any advice?

    My Rectangular Marquee Tool is leaving selections all over the place

    My Rectangular Marquee Tool is leaving selections everywhere and the selections are weird with squares in the corners at times. It also seems to have a history so when I Ctrl+Alt+Z it goes back to the previous selection. I have new selection enabled but I still get this problem and it is...

    What's wrong with this image (and how to fix it)

    Hello all - I have an image here that has a weird opaque area in the top left corner (and less pronounced in the top-middle of it, too). My knowledge of Photoshop is pretty limited, but occasionally I find little projects like this one that help me learn more. I've reduced the image size to...

    Photoshop creating closed shape with pen tool despite Shift being held down

    I held down the shift key on my keyboard after I made my last point using the pen tool in Photoshop. But instead of Photoshop just creating a line like it is supposed to when you hold down Shift, it created an entire shape and closes it and fills it. Photoshop does not just stop the line where I...

    Hello from Alex

    Hi everyone, my name is Alex. I am not designer, I am programmer. I use Photoshop occasionally to perform simple graphic tasks. Unfortunately I can't make advanced things, since it required deep tool and techniques knowledge . I hope that one day I will be able to contribute :)

    3D Steam City

    In this exercise I tried to learn to construct the pipes with Bezier curves. The handles of the tool are quite different from Photoshop's pen tool, and it's much more difficult to work with it in the 3D space. But once you have a "path" of your pipe around your object, you can fill the stroke...

    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...

    Switch between the Polygonal Lasso Tool and Zoom - is it possible ?

    Basically my question is whether one can change the Zoom of picture, in the midst of working with the Polygonal Lasso Tool, so that one can continue the selection with the named tool? The premise of the question is that I have a picture, where one needs both the high and low zoom to select the...

    Weird command key glitch??

    So for a little while now, when I'm drawing in photoshop, I'll do Command-Z to undo my last mistake. Holding down the command key also turns my pen into the move tool (idk if that's for everyone or just me). Sometimes I just type the command, my error gets corrected and then my cursor goes back...
