This video tutorial by portrait photographer Nathaniel Dodson (from the website tutvid) takes a look at the pen tool in Photoshop and how to best use it to make precise selections..
This extensive guide takes you through the use of the pen tool (and its different options and versions). Dodson explain the concept of paths and how to use them. There is some need for playing with the pen tool in order to understand exactly how it works and how to manipulate the lines it creates – this is especially true for creating round lines.
In the past we have seen a shorter video on using the pen tool by Aaron Nace entitled “How to Use the Pen Tool in Photoshop“.
