    Can someone please point me to a descent tutorial, book or something that can explain to me how to use the Pen Tool more effectively and smarter? I would be very much thankful!

    Aahhh. The dreaded pen tool...

    At first, a bit puzzling and unintuitive — how the hell does this work? And then, with a little practice it becomes second nature.

    But which pen tool?

    The one in Photoshop, Illustrator, Quark etc? They all have their different quirks.

    Here's some for Photoshop which I found in about 30 secs with Google.
    • Basic Pen
    • Paths & the Pen Tool
    • Pen Tool Tutorial

    Thanks for the links! I really appreciate them. Yes it was for Photoshop I should have been bright enough to post for which.

    I was wanting input from users that know and have advice I will definitely go over the links. Thanks very much!
