    Hi all,

    I have made a path using the pen tool, and stroked it by mistake! Now,
    I can't get this black stroke off my path. Can anyone tell me how to do
    that?

    History? Go back to before it was stroked? Is it on its own layer or on
    a layer with other things? If it's on its own layer, trash the layer.

    You didn't close the file, did you? Need more info here.

    Yes the file has been closed (at work and it became quittin' tme ;)
    I didn't realize that there was a stroke until I opened the file in
    Illustrator CS.
    What happened is this: I drew a path around an object with the pen
    tool. Somehow (?) I stroked the path with a thin black brush. I then
    made a clipping mask between the bkgd and the image, saved the file,
    opened it in Illustrator, and saw the stroked path.
    If you need more info, let me know
    thanks

    So it's definitely NOT on its own layer (in Photoshop)?
    You should look at it in Photoshop first to make sure it's actually
    stroked there.

    The fill stroke is right beside the selection in the paths palette in
    PS. The stroke is NOT on its own layer

    Here's a thought:
    Convert the path to a selection.
    Save the selection as a channel
    Go to SELECT>MODIFY>EXPAND and expand by the amount of the stroke
    thickness
    Go to LOAD SELECTION and load the saved selection as "subtract from
    selection"
    Then use the clone tool to clone out the stroked line with pixels from
    the surrounding area.

    It probable won't be perfect, but you can get close that way, then use clone
    to clean up the problem areas.

    Be sure to work on a duplicate image or a duplicate layer.
