## How to draw exactly 1/3 circle in Photoshop?

### Question

I need to do a pie chart with exact 1/3 chunks. Obviously it's easy to do a quarter circle - just cut the circle in half and then cut that half in half. But how would I do 1/3 circle?

### Accepted Answer

- Create an origin with guides, turn on snapping.
- Choose the polygon tool, draw a 3 sided shape (i.e. equilateral triangle) centred at the origin
- Choose the ellipse tool, draw a circle also centred at the origin with a radius intersecting the triangle.
