  2. Great Tutorial. I didn’t as well as I wanted on the Vector masks in Photoshop.Now, I have an idea of how much easier it is. Thanks!

  3. Thanks a lot Corey. Very educational. I always just used the pen tool to create a path and then clear the parts that I didn’t want (the background), but this looks like a much more smooth and controlled method. ~ZeroGrafics

  4. Hey Corey

    i ve seen dozens of tutorials on vector masks

    Many were well enough tho i was still a bit in the shade

    Your ability to teach and speak is heads above the rest

    i cant wait to see more of your videos

    Cheers

  5. Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge in such a nice and inteligible way!
    I’ve been struggling for so long, and a last I’ve got a clever and clean way to cut objects from the background. That saves me hours of work, fantastic, thanks again!
    Gonna go through all your tutorials…

  6. Hi,

    Everything was really useful until I tried it myself… :( when I select the pen tool and start to trace over the object it fills randomly with colour! I know it’s probably some little thing I haven’t deseselected but it’s driving me crazy! Please help :)

    Thanks

  7. wow. that was fantastic. I’ve so far ignored vectors in my PS adventures just because I thought them too diffficult to get my head round. This will be the beginning of a beautiful freindshiip. Can’t thank you enough :)

  8. Great tutorial Corey, as usual. I have a question that no one seems to be able to answer, so I’m going to the top link in the chain. Can the points in a vector mask be individually addressed and moved after the mask is created in such a way as to move the pixels inside of the mask accordingly? Thanks in advance…if anyone knows answer, it will be you.
