I cannot make good pen lines with a thick stroke. It gets all out of wack. Is it possible to make my lines and change them afterwards?

Hi My Dream,

I have a few questions. Which tool are you using? Are you using the brush? If so, you can manipulate the width of your lines using layer styles. Please note that these styles will affect the entire layer, not just an individual stroke.

1) Here I have a stroke that I drew with the brush tool.

2) In the Layer Palette, click on the button that says "FX" to show the layer style options. Select "Stroke".

3) Change the settings as desired.

4) Match the colors to the original stroke.

Good luck, and I hope this answers your question.

So is it possible to only select one stroke and not the whole layer?
