RetouchPRO LIVE 3/10/2015 Learning the Pen Tool
 
RetouchPRO LIVE with Steve Caplin
Learning the Pen Tool


On our next RetouchPRO LIVE, commercial photoillustrator Steve Caplin shows us how to learn to use Photoshop's Pen Tool.

This is NOT a listing of how and why to use the Pen Tool, or an exploration of every little feature and option. We've already done that.

Instead, we're taking a new approach:
This show will be about actually how to learn the Pen Tool; how to get good at using it. How to practice and develop the muscle memory so it becomes second nature. This is an essential skill, but one that can seem intimidating to even advanced users.

After his presentation, Steve will answer questions on any Photoshop topic. You can optionally upload problem images to ask about.

To upload your images, go to http://www.retouchpro.com/upload and use access code "pen" (no quotes). You do not need to JPG your image, but you can if you want. Do not wait until showtime to upload.

If you're not in the US, remember we switched back from Daylight time this past weekend, so the show will start an hour earlier for you (inside the US it will start at the stated time, unless you forgot to reset your clock).

Great stuff as always, just one thing - Port is red and Starboard green!

thank you for a great tutorial. i have always found the pen tool impossible. however after practicising for an hour I managed to cut out the clock at 90% acceptable. finding the concave curves most difficult.

Turned today in to "pen tool exercise day"...
Referred to this vid many times, getting more fluid and much faster at paths and selections!

Thanks for a great video!
