Okay, I am trying to make a curved line in PhotoShop. Probably sounds pretty Easy.

Just playing around, I managed to make this: I don't remember how I did it though. I know I used the line tool.

See how it fades out in the middle? I don't like that. I want it to be solid all the way through. What is a better way to come up with a line such as this in Photoshop

  • It's very hard to see what's going on there, is there anyway you can post a full resolution version? Even if it was only a small portion of the middle section.

1) Select the Pen Tool (P) from your Tools window.

2) In the Options window, set the tool mode dropdown to Shape, set the Fill dropdown to No Color, and choose a Stroke Color and Stroke Width.

3) Click-drag on your canvas to draw points on a Bezier curve.

4) Use the Direct Selection Tool (Shift A) to make adjustments. Click curve handles to adjust curve angles. Command-click points to move points.
