How To create custom shapes for photoshop
So here what I am going to do is converting my logo to a custom shape.
As you can see I have a white background and my logo on top of it. To create a custom shape we need a path to that shape.
Hold the Ctrl key, and click the layer thumbnail for which you want to create a path.
now go to the edit from the menu bar.
here you have to choose defend custom shape, but now the defend custom shape is greyed out. This happens if you have already installed too many custom shapes.
to find your shapes go to the window from the menu bar
and choose shapes.
See, i have a such a huge numbers of shapes, even i cant scroll all of them smoothly. to create new custom shape we need to delete some shapes.
for now I’m deleting all of them. to delete all the shape just select this group and click on here to delete.
let’s again try to make this path into shape. so into the edit choose define custom shape. see now we can click on it.
give a name for the shape, and hit okay.
See our logo is now converted into shape.
now we have all the customization options for the shape, we can change the color, or add strokes without losing its quality.
and the best part of the shapes is that you can do it scale up or down multiple times it will never pixelate because the shapes are vector
You can draw shapes using the Pen Tool, and save them as we just did
just make sure when you creating shapes with a pen tool, the path mode is selected in the option bar.
