How to draw a straight line in PS7


I need times to draw a straight line or drawing line in PS7. Most software programs have that ability, but I couldn't find any reference to it in PS7.

Hi Mike:

Try this...
1. With brush tool active "click" where you want one line endpoint.
2. While holding down shift key "click" where you want line other endpoint.

In the tool menu use the line tool located in the fly out within the rectangle tool which is located below the type tool and beside the pen tool
Or you can use the paint brush of the appropriate size hold Shft (shift key) down and paint in a continuous stroke either a vertical or horizontal line..
Or click paint button once hold Shft place point of paint brush somewhere else then click paint button again for a straight line from one point to another
