I need to be able to stroke a path with a custom shape eg DASHES around a SHAPE for which I can then edit the points.
PS can stroke a path/selection... but it is not editable
PS can stroke a shape with a pattern stroke but goes weird when you pull the points around
PS can type text wingbats along a path then pull the points around (best bet but I may want different stroke images)
but I want it to do as Illustrator would do... The art work on the stroke will always edit with the points....
I can make a good custom shape with my art work, define that as one shape but I'd need more than one shape if the image aspect ratio changed too much)
I can't use AI for this though as I need to set up some actions on a folder ( all stills to have a artwork border)
