I made a custom shape using the 'custom shape' tool in photoshop. I want to convert this to a path so that I can delete certain points from the shape and make a new shape.

How do I do that?

Use the Direct Selection Tool (or press A), then Double Click on the path. You will then see the anchors, which you can delete/move or add more

  • Thank you! how do I move a path? The only way I've found is to use the direct selection tool, select all the anchors, and nudge them around with the arrow keys... I figured there was a simpler way using the move tool, but using it and just clicking and dragging on the path doesn't seem to do anything. Dec 10, 2013 at 12:56
