View Full Version : Stroke Path

11-25-2011, 04:27 AM

I am having an issue with stroke path in Adobe photoshop.

There were times the stroke path (on a straight line or otherwise) would create a streak-like effect such as: http://mombasajamaat.org/img/box-bottom-divider.png

Notice it fades out at both ends.

Now, when I apply the stroke path effect, it doesn't fade out and the line is uniform from end to end. I am sure there is a setting that has been altered - can anyone help in figuring out how to get the effect in the image above?

Would greatly appreciated it as I've tried what I could but I am sure its something simple.

Thank you!

Quick Fix: When you have your line and you right click it and hit stroke path and the box comes up make sure its on pencil for a solid line if you have it set to brush it seems to give this effect.

or you can just uncheck Simulate Pressure. They both seem to work.

it's also dependent on the brush settings you've currently got selected. Best practise is to get the brush settings correct first, practice on a new layer if required, then without changing those settings jump over to paths > stroke path with brush, this will use the exact settings you just specified...thus allowing the feathered edges etc etc...

hope it helps
