    Hi I need a bit of help with drawing capabilities in Photoshop 7

    I need to do a template of a house. The roof section is on an angle of
    30 degrees. I can create a rectangle of 2875 pixels width by 200
    pixels high. What I want to do is slice it from top right to bottom
    left leeaving me with a triangle. There is a slice tool in Photoshop 7
    but never used it. Can anyone help here as I could use photoshop to
    lay things out here.

    Thanks.

    Desmond.

    Here's a different way:

    Make your rectangle
    Using the pen tool make a path through the corners you want to make your
    triangle
    Save the path, deselect it
    Select all, clear the rectangle from the canvas
    Re-activate the path
    If you want a line, stroke the path or make a selection and choose Edit
    Of you want a solid, fill the path or make a selection and choose Edit >
    Fill...
