Hi. I struggle with the following problem in Photoshop: I created a shape using curvature pen tool. When I attempt to copy the shape into a new image, and place it on top of a transparent background layer (or also if I try to delete my background layer completely), it changes shape. E.g. I create a black arrow shape, and after putting it on top of transparent background (or also after deleting the background), it changes into a black rectangle. What do I do wrong, or how do I preserve the original shape "as is"?
The shape is consisting of two shapes: an ellipse and a curvature-pen-tool-drawn arrow. In the first screenshot, there;s the original image, on white background. On the second screenshot: the image is create in the following manner: in the "New" dialogue the "Background Contents" setting is changed to "Transparent" (though it shows white in reality). The shape was drawn from the original image using a mouse drag-and-drop. It resulted in a black rectangle showing int he place where I placed the copied objects. Now, I tried to convert the shapes into a smart object as well as rasterize them before copiying them, but it all ended the same way. So not sure, where the issue is. Ludek
