Kathy,

Can you be real specific about what “line” tool you are using in Photoshop CC? I am having a hard time following your explanation.

Subject: Re: [SCIART] [EXTERNAL] [SCIART] hollow line tool in CC?

Chris, what threw me with this new CC line tool is that you wanted to create an outline around the line, you had to select the fill, either null (the background) or a color or texture or whatever. It was staring me in the face, but there are several new tools and tweaks that I’m learning to deal with, so it’s okay.

What I did was select the line tool, then set the width of the line, the width of the stroke  (a bit further left on the palette), then select what kind of fill (to the left of that). To make a hollow line that I can shape into a stem or pedicel or petiole or whatever, I select ’no fill’. And then the anchor points on the line tool box can be manipulated to shape the line as one pleases. Once I learned how to do this in CS4 and CS5 I never went back to pen and ink work. It really helped with the work flow of this project I finished last year: https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__fieldguides.fieldmuseum.org_guides_guide_1189&d=DwIGaQ&c=Cu5g146wZdoqVuKpTNsYHeFX_rg6kWhlkLF8Eft-wwo&r=AGYZ7-AeerjxzYnIwL-lBLFI3SPYN3BDmku4qGQB4Tg&m=yVjHvGS_pdw6KRGgkDGgqCsaeHiKt3Go81h0FMWQHos&s=cYP73HiZda9M9jL9Ur6H7BKEpJS6TTOclLXgJem1HaM&e= <https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__fieldguides.fieldmuseum.org_guides_guide_1189&d=DwMFaQ&c=Cu5g146wZdoqVuKpTNsYHeFX_rg6kWhlkLF8Eft-wwo&r=AGYZ7-AeerjxzYnIwL-lBLFI3SPYN3BDmku4qGQB4Tg&m=KLhhmEtA1LPERhQ4CzugdOCMPqRC_rdeqZiLJ8uxGoM&s=kJNraReL_9vXvUFnP25kfYmHWTYe7WBYqtiRu2pksjg&e=> as well as its predecessor  https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__fieldguides.fieldmuseum.org_guides_guide_503&d=DwIGaQ&c=Cu5g146wZdoqVuKpTNsYHeFX_rg6kWhlkLF8Eft-wwo&r=AGYZ7-AeerjxzYnIwL-lBLFI3SPYN3BDmku4qGQB4Tg&m=yVjHvGS_pdw6KRGgkDGgqCsaeHiKt3Go81h0FMWQHos&s=u95ZxT6iM3ZXorXrbpv_uu0xqPCsyiVo_6I5rBe9hHA&e= <https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__fieldguides.fieldmuseum.org_guides_guide_503&d=DwMFaQ&c=Cu5g146wZdoqVuKpTNsYHeFX_rg6kWhlkLF8Eft-wwo&r=AGYZ7-AeerjxzYnIwL-lBLFI3SPYN3BDmku4qGQB4Tg&m=KLhhmEtA1LPERhQ4CzugdOCMPqRC_rdeqZiLJ8uxGoM&s=S-f_4fh_CLWG1dgeS0lY3zlAZq3yv3MTwoDQB1ZgjO0&e=>.

What I stumbled upon was Line>select size>Stroke>select size>Fill>no fill. Woot!  I’m figuring this out as I go. The toolbar is just different enough from CS5, with more options, that maybe I’m overthinking everything. Also, I guess it autosaves. I read several complaints about the save permissions feature. I’ll have to ask my son who has some magic where he can look into the depths of my computers from 100 miles away. ;)

Kathy,

 I would like a hollow line tool, too.  How did you make it?

I just created a line tool, then selected ’stroke’, and it became hollow.



Thanks,

How was the hollow line created in CS5?  Is it a brush style? You may be able to export the brush and then import it into CC.

   Hi; I do a lot of technical botanical work in Photoshop CS5 and have been forced to upgrade to Creative Cloud. I’m not finding out how to do a hollow line in CC like I was able to in CS5, such as to create stems, etc.. Any hints on how I can go about that?



   Thanks so much,
