hi geniuses

well there is a problem i can't find a solution
the outline problem with the pen tool

this thing is a pain in the a...

first of all i create a new document
place a photo
grab the pen tool and begin to draw

of course the pen tool is filling the space between the anchor points with the foreground color
like that

i tried drawing on a separated layer on top of the photo
no way

beneath the photo layer

I don't understand what it is you are trying to do. Are you saying you don't want the fill to be happening while you're drawing?

If so, this should help you. You want a path, not a shape layer.

thanks but
i search during 2 hours and finally i found that i just had to turn in the color panel the icon to no color and that did the trick

i'm not sure if it's the right command
but after 2 hours i'll let it like that

photoshop is way less complicated than illustrator

Yep, that's what you do. Choose no color when you're drawing (eg, hit the '/' key)
