 I want you to remember the letter B I'm gonna flash it on the screen right now time and again so that you don't forget this is the most important letter if you want to learn the pen - I don't want you to click with the mouse or the tablet on the pen - ever please use this shortcut letter B enough of flashing let's get started so what is the pen tool though the pen tool allows you to draw two points point a and point B let me turn this on point a and point B and allows you to draw a line between those points and that's pretty much it and this line can be straight this line can also be a curve that's all there is now this is the fundamental of pen - now you can extend it to create complex shapes parts so on and so forth what is spots and shapes we'll get to that later but we need to remember one thing anything you do with a pen - is a Waechter okay it's not a raster it's a weck term now what's the difference between vector and raster here's the difference a waxer is based on mathematical formulas a raster is based on pixels right the picture that you take with a camera is a raster because it's made up of tiny pixels when you bought the camera they might have said you the camera is 24 megapixels or 50 megapixels which means the picture that you take with it consists of 50 million pixels what are pixels small squares with color information they combine together to give you the image wet down the other hand is any graphic which is based on mathematical formulas and not on pixels for example a simple mathematical formula like y equals x determines a straight diagonal line 45 degrees right no matter how much you zoom it here's the special thing about no matter how much you zoom in it will never pixelated why because it's not made up of pixels let me illustrate in Photoshop if you draw any shape let's choose a custom shape and choose any shape that you like and let's choose a color maybe red that's fine and we're gonna choose shape now ifwant let's make it this big and it's still razor sharp have a look it's still very sharp if you make it smaller just like this controller come on T and let's make it smaller and hit enter okay now again let's make it bigger it's still sharp you can do this again and again and it always stays razor sharp but this doesn't happen with raster images because they are made up of pixels and once you make them smaller they burn themselves down into those pixels and once you make it bigger it kind of messes up remember this canvas it's made up of pixels so if you zoom in okay if you zoom in it's going tolet's select it let's delete it now create a new layer select the same shape and this time select pixels now it will be created off pixels let's make it now if you make it bigger it might not pixelate in the first glance right I've made it bigger okay it's still sharp not bad once you make it smaller just like this hit enter and then again when you make it bigger have a look at this it has lost all the details it's totally crazy right now have a look it's crazy all you need to know is that anything you do with the pen tool is a vector simple right now how do you use the pen tool pretty simple use the letter B don't forget it B's the shortcut for the pen to press the letter P second thing select what you want to do you want to make a part or you want to make a shape what are those we'll get to that later first let's understand but now what is a pot a pot is a line a wet to line with no thickness okay if you make a pot like this and if you save the image it won't show up youpath is a vector line with no thickness all right so how to make a straight path it's very simple dot click once click twice click thrice four five sixcan do anything with you can make it a selection make selection or do anything with it so we'll get to that later okay now let's talk about path what if you want to make a curved path okay let's go back and one of the greatest things about using the pen tool.

while you're making a selection is that you can go back by point by point that's amazing right okay to make a curve it's simple to let's open up the point a and point B so that it becomes easy for you on point and I have a point on point B instead of just clicking there we will click and that again for you if you click and drag this is the handle now if you move the handle this way if you rotate the handle this will determine the
degree of the curve now what is a degree is simply the angle 60 degrees 90 degree zero degree right okay now if you make the handle longer this will
control the intensity of that degree suppose this is the degree that you want if you make the handle longer it will increase the intensity of it right degree this
is we are changing the degree we are changing the intensity of that particular degree got it okay now if you look at the handle it has two parts this so if you make a point here see how this curve is influencing that right now you can anytime edit it by holding ctrl or command if you are using
a Mac hold the controller command and you can edit it like hell right you can edit this handle you can edit this point you can do anything you like
have a look you can make it shorter longer isn't that wonderful let's go back let's understand one more thing now instead of starting out with a point we could
have started out with the handle straight away okay so let's go back and instead of starting out with the point if you at the moment in the beginning just
Click and drag this creates in handle creates a handle now the next time you make a point the curve will be influenced by that click and drag now what's
happening a curve is now influenced by two handles right you can edit it anytime you like by holding the key control or command hold the key controller command it
takes you to the direct selection tool and you can edit it real-time and once you're satisfied you can continue okay or you could have continued by clicking and
dragging right and you can finish it right there done so that's how you do it using two handles now why should we use two handles there are a lot might not look weird to you but let me just turn off the circle let's have a look how this looks disgusting and if you don't have double handles
have a look here it looks very sharp anywhere where you don't have a straight handle any point it will look sharp so if you want to make smooth curves
you gotta use two handles but if you want the corner you know what to do right you'll get to that okay now instead of doing that if we would
have started with the handle just like this and then and by the way you can hold the shift key to make sure that it's straight so when you hold
the shift key it's all straight okay let's click and drag here that's fine click and drag here that's great click and drag and complete it now have a look
we can always go ahead and edit it make it a little larger I guess we could have made it a little larger hold the control key there
we go now if you turn it off it's much more smooth or has a look it's so much smoother it doesn't have a hard edge so all these
have two handles influencing one line to have a smoother curve, okay you don't want it to be sharp in the points now that circle was easy because it didn't.
