To create a rasterized shape:

1 Select a layer. You cannot create a rasterized shape on a vector-based layer (a shape layer or a type layer).

2 Select a shape tool, and click the Fill Pixels button in the options bar.

3 Set the following options in the options bar:

• Mode to control how the shape will affect the existing pixels in the image. (See "Selecting a blending mode" on page 241.)

• Opacity to determine to what degree the shape will obscure or reveal the pixels beneath it. A shape with 1% opacity appears nearly transparent, while one with 100% opacity appears completely opaque.

• Anti-Aliased to blend the shape's edge pixels with the surrounding pixels.

4 Set additional tool-specific options, and draw a shape. For more information, see "Using the shape tools" on page 203 and "Using the pen tools (Photoshop)" on page 205.

Note: In Photoshop, you can easily switch between drawing tools by clicking a tool button in the options bar.
