work with shapes ?!!


Hi All
i want to learn how to cut shapes or convert them to layers
for example, im creating a rectangle, then i want to divide into two pieces like the screen shot below, i want to create the two red triangle shape from the rectangle:
Convert to layer (rasterise):
* menu/layer/raterise; or
* right click shape/rasterise

Cut out:
Raterise layer and:
* Select wanted area and apply layer mask; or
* Select wanted area and CTRL/CMD+J to send to new layer; or
* Select unwanted area and DELETE

Change shape:
* Select 'path selection tool' and click shape to reveal path with anchor points; and
* Select 'delete anchor point' tool and delete one of the corner points (shape changes to triangle)
