View Full Version : Creating Wavy Lines in Photoshop

I'm having a hard time creating some wavy lines in photoshop... Believe it or not I've spent a good hour trying to learn the pen tool but no success... I'm really trying to do a wavy line as seen on this site:


Those red and blue wavy lines beneath his picture that span across the width of the site...

Could anyone advise?

you can use paths or the pen tools

I'm trying to avoid the pen tool... how would I do it using a path?

Its not an easy thing to explain but hopefully this diagram will give you a hand. Having the grid on may make it easier, I have mine set to 10px.


With the pen tool, click at the red circle and then holding the mouse down drag to the blue circle and then release. You can then use the direct selection tool if you need to tweak any of the handles when you are done to get the curve you desire.
