Photoshop Free Form Pen Tool

Updated on December 7, 2015

Photoshop Freeform Pen Tool

The freeform pen tool lets you draw as if you were drawing with a pencil on paper. Anchor points are added automatically as you draw. You do not determine where the points are positioned, but you can adjust them once the path is complete.

How To Use The Freeform Pen Tool

1. Select the freeform pen tool .

2. To control how sensitive the final path is to the movement of your mouse or stylus, click the inverted arrow next to the shape buttons in the options bar, and enter a value between 0.5 and 10.0 pixels for Curve Fit. A higher value creates a simpler path with fewer anchor points.

3. Drag the pointer in the image. As you drag, a path trails behind the pointer. When you release the mouse, a work path is created.

4. To continue the existing freehand path, position the freeform pen pointer on an endpoint of the path, and drag.

5. To complete the path, release the mouse. To create a closed path, click the initial point of the path (a circle appears next to the pointer when it is aligned).

      This tool can seem really daunting at first but as with riding a bike, once you've mastered it you never forgot.
