Create a circle. Convert Object to Path. Extensions → Modify Path → Add Nodes… Select by number of segments. In the example I chose five segments; you will likely want to choose a higher number. Create a symmetric trapezium. Select the trapezium and your circle and apply Extensions → Modify Path → Perspective. Remove trapezium. In the Nodes tool, ...

With Photoshop CS6, CC or CC2014 you can easily accomplish this with just a circle shape and the stroke features. Draw a circle Add anchor points where you want pieces cut out remove sections between anchors duplicate the layer for each different colored section you'll want delete sections from the copies for areas you do not want in that color. Here is ...

Photoshop makes it a rather difficult but Its still doable. here's how I do it: Make the circle as you would and mark down its centre using guides Cut into the circle with another circle through the centre. Now here if you have a rough Idea, how thick a circular line you want, you can create the first shape lets say 500x500 px and the cut into it with a ...

"I want to make the gray, green and blue part. It basically is a slightly altered rounded rectangle." That is not the best way to see it. You should look at it instead like you have a circle - maybe all in one color at first, that had a stroke but no fill. Then you use the "Add Anchor Point" tool to mark segments you want to cut out of it, and delete them. ...

Check if your strokes are aligned to the same place, ie inside, centre or outside - find this in the path and stroke panel.

First, you might want to deactivate all snapping (also to pixel grids and all, see this question). Then: activate the Smart Guides (View > Smart Guides or Ctrl / Option+U); select the move tool (V); grab the rectangle shape by its lower left anchor (be sure the smart guide tip says 'anchor'); drag it over to the circle's bending point, where one of the ...

There are 2 main parts to this: Alignment and Size - other things like whitespace and shape are harder to objectively analyse but still important. As with most art and designs, balance is not exact, but a close approximation. Alignment Instead of aligning the bases or the centres of the "bounding box", objects are aligned by their centroid, show below. ...

If you've merely created outlines of the type to generate your 'Wireframe" then simply change the stroke color. If you have indeed used the 3D Effect and set it to "wireframe", then do the following: Group the type Add a new stroke via Appearance panel above the [content] item in the panel Change the color of this new stroke With these steps the 3D ...

I'm going out on a limb and suppose you've created the wireframe using the Effect > 3D > Extrude & Bevel effect. In that case: Unfortunately, there is no way of doing this and keep the 3D effect editable. You can Object > Expand Appearance the wireframe object, and then change the stroke colour on the resulting group of lines.

Firstly, you're VERY observant ;) I'm guessing you're working on a document that is in CMYK colour mode? How you tackle it depends on your purpose. If you are creating print graphics then you can safely ignore it, because it's an artefact of how Illustrator renders the CMYK color model on screen. If you're creating graphics for screen, switch to RGB – ...

Insure that your shape layer is selected in the layers panel Choose the Direct Selection tool from the tool bar () or press A Now you'll be able to access all of the properties for your shape in the command bar at the top of the screen—including the shape's fill color.

also be sure to select the Rectangle-Tool to bring up the ribbon-menu on top of your screen so as to change not only color but also stroke-color and width or no-stroke... This can be confusing because the shape-related menu-ribbon disappears once any other tool than the shape-drawing tool is selected.

Just in case you don't delete this and so that others may see, you double click on the layer thumbnail in the layers palette to open the color picker. To delete your question, look at the bottom, where you see options like Share, Edit, Delete, Flag.

You could script this. The center of a triangle is the barycentric coordinate, which is just the vector average. So: #target illustrator // CC BY SA Janne Ojala 2014 function rotate_around_vertex_average(obj, ang) { var points = obj.pathPoints; var x = 0; var y = 0; for(var i=0; i < points.length; i++){ point = points[i]; ...

Short answer: you'll have to do this mostly by hand. The reason Auto-Align won't work for you is based on how it works. The algorithm looks for things that match, image to image, such as the background elements in a series of group photographs or the overlapping sections of a panorama. It has no way for you to tell it "this is my point of interest". Your ...

Note: There's going to have to be some manual labor here not matter how you look at it.

In Illustrator... Select it all, Pathfinder > Merge, click the red, hit delete. Or Select it all, grab the Shape Builder Tool, Hold down the Option/Alt and click-drag starting below the rings, to the center ring covered by red.

I didn't hash it out too much, but I'd do it with before and after pseudoclasses. Create a circle before that matches the color of your link's background color, then create a circle after that matches the color of the page background. div { position: relative; } a { width: 150px; height: 100px; line-height: 100px; background-color: #ddd; ...

I ran into this exact same issue a while ago, also while drawing a bunch of small icons. Turns out you can do some pretty neat stuff with the "Blend if… This Layer" slider in the Layer Style panel: Dragging the right slider all the way to the left basically tells Photoshop, "keep everything I draw black opaque, and make everything white transparent". ...

Being Photoshop, there’s probably quite a few approaches to this problem, but only one I can think of that maintains full vector edited and scaling. There’s a few things going on here. Square is just a shape layer for the square. Nothing tricky there. The Blurry Circle group has a circle as a vector mask. The vector mask is set to subtract and also has ...

First, I will answer the question about the envelope, as I think this is what you really want to know. Your logic is a little bit off here. If you want to retain transparency, ie. not use white lines for the envelope, you should instead create a rectangle, then on the same layer change the shape tool to 'line', then change the Path Operations to Subtract, ...

If you absolutely MUST only use a single layer, AND your shapes are spaced out, you could use a gradient fill on the shape layer. With a bit of tinkering you should be able to achieve 1 layer and multiple colours. However Photoshop is not designed to work this way. If you don't know how to separate shapes into new layers it's easy: just select your shape ...

If by "shapes" you mean vector layers or shape layers, then no. It is not possible to have multiple colors on a single vector or shape layer. Any method to change colors will require at least one additional layer per color needed. That can be a separate layer for each shape, or a separate layer filled with color and masked - but it always takes additional ...

Object > Transform > [the transformation you want] and uncheck "Transform Object". This will cause "Transform Pattern" to auto-check, thus transforming the pattern but not the object. Simply enter a value and click OK. Additionally, if you hold the ~ (tilde) key down while using a transform tool such as the Scale Tool, Rotate Tool, etc. It will cause ...

One permanent way is to invoke Pattern Options and rotate the objects inside -> Duplicating and Saving and Re-applying the new pattern to the object. (wrong part of the answer was removed)

It's because you're resizing multiple shapes in the first one where the second one you're only resizing a single shape. Save a 2nd file, try flattening one of them and then resizing it.

The easiest way to work around this is to click (with the Pen Tool) away from the location you want the anchor point. Then hold down the Spacebar and drag the mouse so the anchor is in the position you want it. If you have closed shapes, the pen won't join to closed paths. This is only a problem when you have open paths.
