Creating a work path (Photoshop)

A work path is a temporary path that appears in the Paths palette and defines the outline of a shape. You can use paths in several ways:

• You can use a path as a vector mask to hide areas of a layer. (See "Masking layers" on page 314.)

• You can convert a path to a selection. For more information, see "Converting between paths and selection borders (Photoshop)" on page 218.

• You can edit a path to change its shape. For more information, see "Editing paths (Photoshop)" on page 210.
