In today’s Photoshop video tutorial, Manfred Werner explores the Pen Tool – Arguably one of the most powerful tools for retouching!

Learn essential retouching and post production skills each Wednesday, right here on Orms Connect. Tutorial Wednesdays are brought to you by Manfred Werner.

Please note: This video tutorial requires no advanced Photoshop skills and only shows Basics & Tools. This is Part 8 in a series, view the previous tutorials via the related posts to the right.

In this video tutorial, I will show you how to work with the pen tool and also all the other small features around the pen tool. Please note that once you’ve set a new anchor point, hold down the mouse button and then drag your line, known as the path, into the desired direction. Once I’ve placed my anchor points, I will go over to the direct selection tool and reposition my anchor points and fine tune them.

Please note: While you are working with the pen tool you are able to hold down the alt key and get into the quick mode option. Now you are able to move your anchor points freely. If you do have any questions about this please leave a comment below the post!
