How to use Pen tool in Photoshop?

Adobe Photoshop is the creative software for many designers. Its Pen and Brush tools are some of the most large base and most used tool as in user-friendly aspects of the program. In this Photoshop tutorial, we’ll focus on the Pen tool with tips & How to use Photoshop’s Brush tool with tips. 

The Pen tool is a simple selection feature that enables you to fill, stroke or make selections from whatever you draw. It's one of the core tools you need to master before you start exploring more advanced features or getting into Photoshop plugins. In this tutorial, we’ll learn some pointers on how to use the Pen tool, and getting the best result from it.

1. Fill a path

Select the Pen tool using the shortcut P. To make a selection, click two points to create a line between them, and drag a point to create a curved line. Use Alt your lines to change them. Ctrl/right-click your path in the Paths tab on the right, and then choose Fill Path to create a shape from it.

Change the Contents to either Foreground or Background, depending on the color swatch you wish to use. if you wish to fill with pixels from the rest of the image.
The Blend mode and Opacity of the fill will determine how the pixels react with other pixels below. 50 per cent Opacity, Screen, for example, will give a subtle lightening to your shape.
Use Feather Radius to soften the edges of the shape you're filling. To create a completely hard shape, leave this at 0px.
 2. Make a selection

The Pen tool  is a useful selection tool. You can select shapes to brush into. Ctrl+click a path to select it once you've made a shape, or Ctrl/right-click a path and pick Make Selection.

Make a new selection, or add (Ctrl+Shift+click) or subtract (Ctrl+Alt/) a selection if pixels are selected on your layer.
Double-click a path and give it a name to save it as a future selection (Paths palette shown on the right above). These paths will appear as a list down the Paths tab. Click the dotted outline icon in the menu at the bottom of the palette to make a selection. 
3.Stroke a path
Ctrl/right-click a path and choose Stroke to apply a line across the selection in whatever brush you have selected. For this particular line of the chandelier, we used a scatter brush to evenly space the dots. 
Use the drop-down in pop-up shown to change the tool you're using to stroke the line with – for example, instead of whichever brush file you have selected, you may wish to switch to a pencil. 
The Simulate Pressure checkbox applies the pressure you’d usually use when creating a stroke with the Brush tool, meaning your line will taper off at the end.

The toolbar at the top of the interface enables you to quickly decide on the Stroke and Fill color of whatever you create with the Pen tool, instead of having to choose it manually

I Hope all your questions have got answer. Peace
