Hello, I have a couple of lines I've drawn on a image map that I am working on. The lines are perfectly straight but of course my hands lost being that study years ago so I can't paint a straight line with the brushes on top of the drawn line to keep it straight. Is there any auto way to make a line turn into a paint brush style line or action, effect or script that will help me accomplish this task?
Maybe the best way to work it is to get a paint brush to follow a preset path. I know how to set paths in other software and make an png or obj follow that path but still trying to learn that in adobe.
To paint a straight line using a brush-based tool, target a pixel layer (or mask or channel) then click at start location of line then Shift-click at end location.
To stroke a Path with a brush-based tool, target a pixel layer to receive the stroke then either:
- use the Path Selection Tool to right-click on the path and pick "Stroke Path..." from the context menu to get stroke options dialog, or
- select required Path in Paths panel and click the "Stroke path" button at bottom of panel to stroke with previous stroke options. Opt/Alt-click the button for stroke options dialog.
Thanks, great answer but I still having a problem which I am sure it me. I draw a box Marquee and right clicked on the box to get the pop up little window that gives me the path opions but none of them are highlighted to use. Any thought?
Stroking a selection marquee and stroking a Path are different operations with different options, but as long as you have one pixel layer targeted then you should be able to set options and stroke onto it. Do you definitely have one pixel layer targeted?
