The Rubber Band Option in Photoshop

Adobe Photoshop

With the Pen tool selected, in the Options bar click the gear icon and enable the Rubber Band option to preview the path as you move your cursor in the image area. I find this to be valuable when first learning the Pen tool and experimenting with drawing Bezier curves.

    Thanks Julieanne! Your timing on this tip is perfect. I am in the middle of drawing paths around some amplimesh (like chain-link fencing) and this tip and saving me some valuable time. On the downside though,I now have that song “The Rubberband Man” stuck in my head.
