I have made a shape and did 'Stroke Path' to paint it with the brush. I want to make the shape a dashed line so I set the Shape Dynamics and the Angle Jitter to 'Direction'. When I paint the shape, this is the result:

Curved Line

The blue middle line should be following the path. How can I do that?

It should be something like this:

Curbed Line 2

    What version of Photoshop? Vector paths in Photoshop CS6 or newer can do this easily.

In Photoshop CS6 or newer, you can simply set the Stroke Options for a vector path....

  • Thanks, I'm new in Photoshop so I don't know exactly what to do. I have made a path. If I click the Pen Tool there is an option to select Shape instead of Path. But when I click Shape I dont get the options to change the Fill, Stroke and Border options. They are disabled...
