Hello: Level: Just slightly more than a Newbie OS: Windows 7 64bit Ps: CS6
I have been trying to make a semicirlce or a half of a circle in order to make a Sun on a horizon.
Thus far I have used the Ellipse tool and tried using the New Layer > Subtract Front Shape method but I am left with something closer to a crescent shape.
I have also tried to draw a circle and then remove handles but that hasn't worked either.
I've tried a few other things but all have failed me. I have also been all over the Adobe "Help", Forums, FAQ's, Youtube etc. but have been unsuccessful in finding a "how to..."
If you're getting the gist of what I am trying to do/explain and you know of a way I can accomplish what I need I would Greatly Appreciate your time and efforts.
Thank you So Much!!
Make a positive circle and negative rectangle inside one Shape Layer. The options bar provides the necessary controls.
Ellipse Tool in "Shape" and "New Layer" mode - draw a circle.
Rectangle Tool in "Shape" and "Subtract Front Shape" mode - draw a rectangle over half of the circle.
If you want, the circle and rectangle can be merged with "Combine Shape Components" (in the options bar) to remove the parts which aren't rendered.
Thank you for the help. I'm a bit tired 2nite so, I'll give it a go 2mar'o and then luk how it goes
R_Kelly thanx for taking the time to read my post. I always appreciate your input
Mike, that's a good idea too. I'll try that as well
I'll stop back
Also look under the custom shapes for the Crescent Moon shape.
make a circle and mask half of it.
Sorry i read your post wrong.
