    Hi,

    I'm a medium level PS user (v5.5) and a web
    designer.

    How do I use PS to draw long curves ? I have
    tried using the circle tool to create as big a
    circle as possible but the long curves I need
    require too big a circle.

    Thanks to Jim for his advice re the pen tool. My
    problem whenever I try this tool is that when I
    try to get the curve to curve around I always run
    out of screen space. I get to the edge of the
    screen (1024*768) and I can't get it curve any
    sharper.

    well...it you want to send me sample of what you are tying to do...i took
    the day off from work...so perhaps i could help you out.

    I use the pen tool quite frequently (you can set it to create
    vectors)....and if you are using 7 (and i think 6) you can use that to draw
    curves and vectors within photoshop. The feature isnt quite a flexible as
    illustrator....but it it quite good.

    hope this helps....feel free to contact me

    INCREDIBLY generous jj, but I couldn't impose
    like that.

    I am experimenting with the pen tool but it seems
    very very quirky and limited.
    I will check out some of the basic drawing apps
    that come cheap as some of them have better
    drawing tools for stuff like this than PS.

    Tks again !
