Path Questions

Not sure of this is the right section for this, but I wasn't sure where...

1. Is it possible to change the color of the path from black and white to a color? I don't mean to stroke the path, I mean the color of a path as I draw it. I'm often working with neutral colored images and it can be very hard to read the paths.

2. I created a path in the "subtract from path" mode when it should have been in the "add to path" mode. Anyway to make the switch without having to redraw the path?

Thumbs up Re: Path Questions

Yes, you have to select your path with the black arrow (shift A till you get it) so your path will be selected. If you use the white arrow, only the anchoir points will be selected. Once you have your path selected, go to the tool options bar (located in the upper side of Photoshop) and select the add icon. I think it's the first one or the second one. The icon looks like 1 or 2 squares. That way you change the path function.
