  • removing path components in PS

    if i create a path, consisting of several path components, but then figure that i would want to remove a component... how would i accomplish this without deleting the whole entire path?

    use the delete anchor point tool in the sub menu of the pen tool

      okay so just delete the specific component path's anchor one by one then.
      thanks!

        If you're on the pen tool, you can just hover over a point, and you'll see the delete tool pop up (the minus sign will appear next to the pen head cursor). You can also add points to a line by hovering over a line segment until the + sign appears.

        You can hold CTRL/CMD to access the last used selection tool. If this is the white arrow tool (you can cycle through the two on a Windows system by using CTRL-TAB), then you can select an individual point, and SHIFT select multiple points. You can then delete all the selected points by pressing backspace or delete.

          You don't need to select each point one-by-one.

          Direct select tool (white pointer)- Alt-click, selects all points that are connected in a path line. Followed by: DEL

            Thank you. It's a good point that it's expected nowadays. I'll charge the tax on top of the flat rate and discuss it with the client when I send him the first invoice.

            If you live in a place that requires that you collect sales tax on graphic design services, it really doesn't matter how you bill your clients as long as the tax is collected and paid. If you want to...

            I've always charged clients hourly and charge the Sales & Use Tax on top of that.

            Just picked up a new client and we worked out a flat rate (x amount per design regardless of time)....

            That could be a good thing for people in the industry that give a damn, just another reason for someone to pay a little more for quality.
