I am trying to use Photoshop CS5 to make a vector image of a garbage can. The garbage can will contain a few distinct parts that will be different colors and overlapping: A Lid, a can, and dark grooves on the can.
What is the best (or one good) way to model this in Photoshop? I have been using the Pen tool to make a bunch of Paths on a layer, but once I color in the paths with a color, then tweak the locations of the paths, I have to recolor them in and it is a disaster. I want to move already made selections and have the colors move with it. Is shapes what I want here? Sorry, I am a newb :)
