  • drawing a line

    Sorry for the really dumb question, bur I cannor remember how to draw a straight line or a box with PSE or CS. My mind is blank. Help.

    With PS 7 I use the square marquee tool... Make a new layer, select your line shape and fill with black. Perhaps this is the "caveman" way, but it works for me. I then use the "free transform" option to edit the lines dimentions.

    Hope this helps!

        Select a brush or pencil, click where you want to start, hold down the shift key and click where you want to end. Use show rulers and drag out grid lines to follow if you need them..skip

          How to draw a straight line in PS7
          by Mike Hallock

          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.

          Is there a way in PhotoShop to start with a line segment, and automatically extend the line along the same direction/angle as the segment without defining an end point?

          I have a photo of a house with siding. The lines of the siding show in the shade but not in the sunlight. I want (on...

          Forgive me for being a complete beginner (comparatively), but... I've just upgraded to CS, and there are one or two things that continue to fox me. Start with this:
