Heart Shape Image

Postby okyou » Wed Jun 13, 2018 9:33 pm

Hello Everyone,

Is there a way to create a border with the vector or raster heart shape ? When I tried to use the Image/Add Border, it just added border to the square/rectangular image frame but not the heart shape. Thanks for any tips and tricks..
okyou

Look in your Preset Shapes. There should be a heart shape there that you can create as either a vector or raster shape.

Try this:
1. File > New, 500 x 500 pixels, transparent background.
2. Choose the Preset Shape tool and in the materials palette make the Background and Fill properties transparent if you want that.
3. Choose Heart preset shape. Along that line tick create as vector if you want that or untick if you want as raster.
4. Now further along you will see a box labelled Width . Change that to 5 or 10 or whatever size border you want and making sure that the two color boxes in the materials palette are different , when you draw the heart shape you should have the border around the heart.
Is that what you are after?

Thanks for your help. However, when I get to the change line style and width, it was locked. Do you know what did I do wrong ?

Make sure that Retain Style is unchecked or you will get exactly what is shown in the drop down choices box. You want to vary the style so you do not need to retain the original style.
