Fill shape created using "Pen Tool"


Question

I have created an Arc using Pen Tool in a new layer. I want to fill and the convert it into a shape for further manipulation.

I tried "Ctrl + left click" on layer to select the stroke as well as invert select, to select shape/stroke outline, nothing happened.

I'm entirely new to Photoshop CS5 and graphic design.

Your guidance would be appreciated.

Accepted Answer

If you are trying to save the shape for further manipulation, all you need to do is name the path in the Path window so it won't get overwritten when you create another shape.

If you don't see your Paths window go to Window > Path to show it.

To create a shape with the pen tool from the start, make sure the Shape Layer icon is selected.
