#22: Cutting Clipping Paths

We're back in Photoshop this week because I wanted to talk a little bit about a very specific skill that I think is important for all designers. That is the Pen Tool and using it to hand-draw clipping paths. There are a variety of ways to make selections in Photoshop, but drawing a real vector path is the most tried-and-true and highest quality way to do so. Mastering this tool will make you a better designer and help unleash your creative potential.
