Vector Tutorial for Beginners by sundayx Vector Tutorial for Beginners by sundayx
-- Download to Desktop required --
After downloading the .zip file, just extract the files to a folder and open index.html

This is a simple Vector Tutorial for Adobe Photoshop (focusing on CS2 but most settings apply for previous versions).

It covers:
Basics: The basics as to how to use the Pen Tool,
Designs: Vector use in designs,
Extraction: Using shapes to extract an image from its background, and
Colouring: The different ways of colouring using vectors.

If you have any queries as to what is covered, just send me a note or leave a comment.

Please Note that this is merely the way I use vectors in Photoshop; you are perfectly entitled to doing things your own way, as there are so many possibilities.

Thank you to *Della-Stock and ~temabinastock for use of their stock.
