How can I easily deselect a path after creating it in Photoshop?


Question

I've asked this question before, but for Illustrator: How can I easily deselect a path after creating it in Illustrator?

I want to make hair strands, so I'm using the pen tool to make a path with two points. I am making hundred of these strands. I need to deselect the path after each strand. How do I do this? I don't want to copy the strand because that's not the look that I am going for. Thanks a bunch in advance!

Here is a video on what I am describing: Vector/vexel: Vexeling (Part 3) [Tagalog]

In Photoshop, Click the blank area in the Path Panel.

click

Photoshop path functions aren't nearly as robust as Illustrator. So, for Photoshop you basically have to click the Path Panel to deselect the current active path.

You can also hold down the Command or Ctrl key and click in the document window.
