I'm not sure if this has been covered in this thread, but I'd like to hear some techniques on getting the cleanest possible edges when either cutting objects out of images or creating shapes.

Is it true the pen tool can accomplish this if used a certain way?

yes it can be done with a pen tool...

i always use the polygonal lasso tool... zoom in the image real close and trace it with the lasso. once you have the trace completed... right click > select inverse > press the delete key... if you take your time and zoom in far... you can get a nice cut.

i use the magic wand tool. its quicker if the image has a more contrasting background color then i just refine the edge. i like the lasso tool if i'm looking for a very defined cut.

if i'm doing something more complex then i duplicate a color layer then fuck with levels and the eraser with some other shit that takes forever but worth it if you can get it right

I definitely know of this method, but I'm still curious of how some of the best graphic designers in the industry make the edges of certain objects as clean as an X-acto knife cut.

well i know the pen tool, once mastered, can make a wicked clean cut out...

and to be honest... there has to be a bunch of ways to do it, but like you... i am curious as to what the best/official way to do it is... ive always just done what worked!

I was using it last night and it looked noticeably better when i cut stuff out, but yes it's definitely tricky to use.

Also I'm left handed but use my right hand with my mouse. I've always have, but performing intricate cuts or trying to write stuff can be hard for me.


I'm going to guess the only way to master the pen is using a Wacom graphics tablet and a stylus.

you can use the pentool in illustrator, or the brush tool and save each... because in illustrator, anything made with the pen tool, does not pixelate, its a vector, mathematics is involved, so it doesnt get distorted
