comment Change arrow color photoshop
Won't that also color the small dropshadow? Or does Color blend mode not affect gray scale (since it doesn't affect white)? Don't have PS in front of me to check..

@Spedwards That won't accomplish anything.

@zolter create it from scratch using two rectangles which you rotate slightly to form an arrow. Put them in a group and add a dropshadow layer effect and the Color overlay (as described in the answer) to that group. Use the image you have as reference and simply hide or delete it when you're done.

Hi Jenna, thanks for the tips! And thanks for letting me know what the correct term is. Polygonal patterns, I'll make sure to remember that! :)

comment How to make graphics that can NOT be Traced on illustrator?
Find and use the perfect balance of your watermark. Something that makes the design readable enough for a prospector to perceive it, but damaged enough so that copying it would be greatly time consuming.

comment photoshop - cut and move part of a shape layer
@Scott One question, does the OP now know WHY shapes can't have areas manipulated using the regular selection tool? The answer to that is yes, because I told him. I think understanding the fundamentals of the object composition is far more constructive than tailoring for an ad hoc use case.

comment photoshop - cut and move part of a shape layer
@Scott Ok, I won't be obstinate. I realize keeping it as a vector shape does provide more flexibility and that rasterization is destructive. My answer was the answer to the OP, why the point couldn't be moved around. I won't debate there being more correct approaches when dealing with this task.

comment photoshop - cut and move part of a shape layer
@Scott but maintaining the quality is redundant if you already have your size. Not sure why I'm telling you this but the shapes are rasterized either way when exported. If you select and move the arrow you're sure of it keeping its size. If you're moving a second shape around, getting it to "point out" the same on each direction, is more tricky. I definitely stick to raster as being the most convenient approach.

@Scott just out of keen interest, why shouldn't bharal rasterize?

comment photoshop - cut and move part of a shape layer
@bharal Basically, a shape is a mathematical representation of an illustrated object. With points and direction of lines between the points. Manipulating such an object can be done in the points (point manipulating tool, shortcut A) but not in areas between the points. Rasterize basically means "transform to pixels". The object is then consisted of a grid of pixels, where each individual pixel has no "relation" to any other pixel. Therefore there's no problem manipulating isolated parts of such an object.
