Run the Illustrator, take a path tool and go on. It's enough to draw only a half of this shape. The rest is just a vertical reflection. Believe me it's a waste of time trying to find some other solution. I am pretty sure that the result won't be as you would like it to be.

Photoshop does have vector tools but in my opinion they are far less intuitive than Illustrator's and don't give you the same level of path control. I think that the graphic you have attached will take considerably longer to construct in Photoshop than in Illustrator. I think you'd be better off going into Illustrator and manually tracing the paths; it ...

Fortunately it's pretty simple. Create new document and create two shapes. Choose "Path Selection Tool" Select any shape. Ctrl + x (or Cmd + x) Select the second shape using "Path Selection Tool" Ctrl + v (or Cmd + v) Intersect Shape Areas (look at blue circle on options bar)

In many schools of architecture, the software of choice for creating annotated vector drawings of 3-dimensional geometry is a workflow from Rhinoceros 3D (Rhino) to Illustrator. Rhino is generally the tool of choice for 3D drawings, diagrams, and drafting because it can be easily scripted or extended with Python or Grasshopper (a visual programming plugin). ...

If your handles are also missing, go to View and check if "Show Bounding Box" is active. (Crtl + Shift + B to toggle).

I suggest you to export an *.eps file from Sketch and simple open it in Photoshop without any resizing. After that take an option which is called 'Save for Web' (Shift+Cmd+Alt+s or from main menu 'File->Save for Web') and resize your image to get the dimensions you need. Listen to the dougajmcdonald and prepare the size you expect them to be rendered in a ...

As a web developer, I would say you should export the images at the size you expect them to be rendered. This is for two reasons: a) Filesize - a 2MB file scaled down in terms of resolution, still has to be downloaded at 2MB b) Rendering - a 1000x250px image which is displayed in a 250x50px tag, will be rendered by the browser at runtime. This is both ...

For your particular problem, you need to figure out what the target screen sizes are (probably mostly between 1920x1080 and 1366x768) along with the default zoom options and then increase those pattern sizes in your art to get out of the danger zone where moire is created. Note that Acrobat/Distiller/whatever-they-call-it-now has a "default view" setting in ...

If you cut out the central circle from the larger circle the object path will run around the remaining "O" shape. The auto align features will then snap to this path easily.

If everything you are doing is vector and scalable as you say, why are you insisting on designing this in Photoshop to begin with? Why not do the layout completely in Illustrator/InDesign? As for the barcode, it may be raster. PDF's don't "have" to be vector, they are just capable. If you would like an eps of your barcode, there are several barcode ...

I would start by breaking down the process. Each one is creating a larger shape from smaller shapes. First, create the larger shape. Create a a few varying smaller shapes (maybe 2-3). Try creating using symbols (symbol will come in handy because you can edit the symbol and it would effect all if you want to change) or as the above comment link states the ...

They draw them. That's how most all 'high quality' logos are done. Someone takes the time to craft them by hand. A tutorial can't really help with basic design concepts like balance, color, weight, contrast, movement, etc. That's just something that will come with practice and experience.

There is a program called Processing that is perfect for some of these; in particular, that umbrella. You could import the umbrella, generate a random point, test to see if the point is inside the umbrella, and if it is, use the point to draw a circle of a random radius. You could even control the density of the circles from left to right. Lullaby might have ...

I think the best way is to use Pattern Along Path under menu Path -> Path Effect Editor. In this way it's easier to edit. :) Here's the steps: Create a rectangle that looks like the one you want to deform Convert it to Path (menu Path => Object to Path) Copy it into the clipboard Create a bezier curve of the deformation Select the bezier curve and go to ...

I don't know what resolution you need in the final print, but 500-700 cm is one heck of an output file, and you apparently have several gigabytes of data to concatenate. If Illustrator started to grind on 2.5% of your files, I'd say there is too much vector information for it to render quickly on screen, so you may have success in wireframe mode. One ...

For the mathematical formulas, I would definitely use LaTeX, since it gives you high quality typesetting for math stuff. You don't have to install LaTeX yourself if you don't want to, because there are online LaTeX renderers which let you export the result to e.g. pdf. Therefore, if you go to this site and enter the correct code for your formula ...

Use the Type tool to set the formulas. You might want to explore the Glyph Panel to find some of the operators. Simply click with the type tool and start typing. You can then use the Line Tool to draw the lines. When you have everything in the document, you can then use the Move Tool (the black arrow) to move things into whatever position you desire. The ...

You can write your formulae in Illustrator? Then you can go Type -> outline. That will make your text vector, and you can scale as much as you want. Edit: To write formulae in an efficient way in Illustrator, you need a plugin, or you can combine Illustrator and LaTex. To compose them of the separate elements are not really very efficient. I have not done ...

More on unique features of EPS. PDF is a distilled EPS , that is all the intelligence the EPS file contained has been stripped away. For example, since the EPS is intended to be executed at the printer or RIP stage it can use the printers settings. So the logo could decide to print a specially made black and white version instead of printing a grayscale ...

EPS is "Encapsulated PostScript," which pretty much gives you its origin and its purpose. It's a legacy file format that permits a visual representation of PostScript code. The only benefit of EPS today is that it's theoretically usable by any vector graphic application, no matter how old, and by legacy equipment such as older computer-controlled engraving ...

To deform a rectangle we need to convert it to a path first. Draw and select rectangle. Choose Path > Object to Path. Choose the Edit Path by Nodes tool (or F2) Select the corner nodes of the rectangle's top line Make the selected line a curve by pressing Push/Pull the curve handle until happy Repeat step 4. to 6. for the bottom line. Add stroke ...

To avoid having to rasterize: Draw an Ellipse using the Ellipse tool in "Shape drawing" mode while holding down the SHIFT key to constrain it to a circle. By default the resulting circle will have 4 segments/anchor points. Use the direct selection tool to select and delete segments to give you the desired arc. You can always add more anchor points to ...

A visual effect, whether in Ai or Ps, isn't always attainable by applying effects to a single layer, far less a single object. The richness of the feature sets we have available in these programs can lead you down a blind alley, trying to achieve everything you want by piling on effects to a single object when, just as in painting, what you need to do is use ...

Circle with stroke applied: Fill Opacity down to 0: Rasterize effect: Delete what you don't want, select, and make work path: Of course this is only one method. Its probably easier to use Illustrator. Might even be easier to just use the pen tool in photoshop but to get perfect circles you'd have to set up guidelines or grids anyways so maybe ...

Use the Ellipse tool in the toolbox to make a circle. You can draw another circle inside to make a wheel (press ALT to substract) Draw a rectangle with ALT + SHIFT to intersect the new area and the existing shapes. Combine shapes More info

The trick is to turn the path in to a Compound Path (CMD + 8). That makes the SVG output an actual path rather than a primitive type.

Id doesn't have the kind of built-in shape libraries that Ps has, but there's another way to go that should fit your needs. What works well, based on my own travails teaching InDesign, is to introduce them to Create Outlines on the Edit menu. It even has an easily memorable kbsc, Ctl-Shift-O/Cmd-Shift-O. Wingdings and Webdings are distributed with the OS, ...

I doubt it was made in illustrator vector but it could've been. If so it was a very expensive custom job. More likely its a photo brought into photoshop then adjust levels and maybe use the posterize filter along with some hue/saturation techniques for the coloring. To do this in illustrator you just need to draw all the different shades as vectors which ...

Save for web and make sure the "Clip to Artboard" is not selected. That will do the trick for Adobe CC, I'm not sure if CS6 has this function.

Go to File > New > Library and create a new library. Then you'll now have a library panel that you can add to the UI like any other panel in InDesign. You can then create a custom shape and simply drag it into this panel and it'll be added to your library. I just gave this a go in CS4 and it works just fine. I was able to create a new object, open a new ...

You can create a shape in Illustrator copy it and paste it into InDesign.

One way is to find a typeface that has the shape you want as a character. Type it on its own in a text box, then choose Type > Create Outlines (Shift+Ctrl+O or Shift+Option+O) to turn it into a vector shape.
