I'm new to Photoshop and am looking to trace elements of an image I have loaded. My end-goal is to have a series of layers that make up my loaded image so that I can move and manipulate them individually. Basically wondering how to best achieve this?
At the moment, I have been using the Pen tool to create paths around each element of my image. I am liking this so far as I have the flexibility to go in an manipulate my paths so they match my original image as much as possible. I am then basically "filling" these paths with a color by Command + clicking the paths in my Path tab.
So far this is working well except that once the path is filled, I cannot manipulate it after. I am also having a hard time finding a way to feather the edges of the filled path layer, is this possible?
Any ideas or suggestions on how to accomplish this would be greatly appreciated.
