Really new to this so sorry if anything seems dumb!

I've got a vector that I'd really like to replace the colour with glitter. Is there any way to replace the colour in the vector with a jpeg image of the glitter colour?

Hope that makes snes.


Yes, you certainly can!

It's called a vector mask, when you use a path as the mask.

Draw a vector path with the pen tool, and click Layer > Vector Mask > Current Path

If you already have a vector shape on its own layer, put the image on a layer above and Alt/Option+click between the two layers to clip the image to the shape below.
