    I can't believe I am asking this but....(Photoshop)

    I have a copy of Photoshop 7, yes it is legal I got if through my school last year. So anywho I am trying to makethis but my Pen tool is acting up. When I make the path I get these wierd pieces of color to show up on either side of the "line" made between two near dots. It shows up whenever I bend the line to make it curvy like a wire. If it bows to the left of a straight line then I get color to the left. I will get pictures up tommarow if no one can figure this out.


    I was wondering if any of you have had this happen or any of you know how to get rid of it. I can change the opacity but then it screws me over later in the process.



    kplzthnx bye

    Check the tool settings and make sure your fill is set to transparent, rather than some color.

    yeah sounds like your fill is using some kind of gradient or pattern. I don't use the pen tool much for anything other then selections, so I dunno if that's the problem.

    It WAS a Chinchilla but then again they are about the same thing.

    Well now for the real test...doing the tut all the way through, before all I did was check to see if the color crap was gone....I will hopefully get through with no problems now. I will edit/post the results.


    EDIT: GAH! I am now effectively stuck at step 5. I can't use lighting effects...it is just greyed out text. I can use it on other pictures just not in this tut.... I hate the rules of the universe. Always keeping you from doing what you want to do.


    I will post another screen shot if you need one...
