Rubber Banding in PSE2?
I haven't been able to find this function in PSE2 - is it there?
I've not heard specifically of such a feature in Elements. I'm using Photoshop and there's a lot of functional similarities...
A couple things to try...
With the brush tool active:
* Click the start point of the line
* While holding down the Shift key, click the end point of the line
This should draw a straight line between the two points.
- - - - - -
For rotating/scaling/fine tuning line position, this should work:
* Create a new layer (important)
* Draw your line
* Ctrl + click on the layer name in the Layer Palette (this will "load the selection" - marching ants)
* Transform > Free Transform
Free Transform allows you to move, rotate, stretch, scale the selection.
See the little circle in the middle of the FT rectangle? That's the point that marks the center of the rotation. Drag this circle to the end of the line. When you rotate the FT rectangle, the selection inside will pivot about the little circle.
Is any of this helping?
Thanks for the suggestion, Danny.
Unfortunately when I drag the pivot point it drags the line too and the pivot point remains in the centre of the line.
Good suggestion though.
PS Just tried Free Transform again. Stretching the box vertically or horizontally can give the same effect as rotating the line with one end fixed if on a separate layer. This is almost as good as the Paintshop Pro function. But typically I will draw half a dozen perspecive lines from the same vanishing point and I would have to crate a seperate layer for each.
