  • Cs2 newb, i need to create a dashed line..?

    Hello my dudes !
    I work in cable/fiber optics, long haul survey, and design.
    ok i take Google Earth screen shots of the survey area. for proposed "new build" fiber routes. i have been using Windows Paint to make a colored path on this screen shot of that fiber route. but if its areial its a solid line and if underground then its a dashed line. i can't make a dashed line in Paint.
    my budy gave me a "hack" full version of CS2..... I CAN NOT FIGURE THIS OUT !!! could someone give me an idea of where to go?

    (dont know if this matters, but there is no money being made "other than my hourly"... its just to make my job a lil-easy-er)
    thanks for listening !

      Not sure if this will be exactly the same in CS2 ... but choose "line" from within the "shape" tool.

      Toolbar will have many options to adjust, see screenshot.

      (PS : Probably easier in a dedicated drawing program ... have a look at Serif Drawplus, older versions would do what you need.)

        Photoshop CS2 : HELP: How to RESET Line tool??
        by camarosource
        Some how I have made it so the LINE TOOL is a Thin ARROW. I have no idea how I did it and I really need this reset to how it should be.

        I cannot even understand HOW I could have made the Line Tool anything other than the Line as it's the Custom styles where you can select what Custom...

        I want my CS2 Lasso back!
        by O_photo
        The IT guys came by today with my new computer and PS CS3. I'd done some reading about the upgrade-not nearly enough, but I was able to keep working as I re-learned the application.

        One thing vexes me though: When I specify a feather on the freehand lasso tool it doesn't behave like it...
