I wanted to draw this using Photoshop:

However as you can see the dark green rectangle is not a perfect rectangle. It's rounded at the bottom but I don't know how to do this.

I drew a normal rectangle then subtracted an ellipse from it, but I wanted to know if that's the correct way to do things or not... Subtracting forms with Photoshop CS6 isn't precise, or I used it wrong. I looked on the web and didn't find anything.


1 Answer 1

  1. Use the rectangle tool U.
  2. Draw the shape. Get the pen tool out and "add anchor point tool" under the pen tool options P.
  3. Place it in the bottom center of the rectangle.
  4. Get the direct selection tool A and click on the new anchor point and drag upwards.

    Just to add to this since I get the feeling Namrouch might not know -- you can also use guides to assist. Show your rulers (Ctrl/Cmd + R) and click and drag out from the rulers to create guides. That will help with centering and such.
