Photoshop Tip: Creating a dotted line

Here's another handy tip for Photoshop CS3. To create a dotted line in Photoshop:

  1. Select the Pencil or Brush tool from the tool menu
  2. Open the Brushes Palette from the Window menu
  3. Click on the 'Brush Tip Shape' item in the list on the left
  4. Adjust the 'Spacing' slider on the bottom of the right list

Adjust the 'Spacing' slider to give you the spread between the dots that you'd like. Playing with the adjustments on the other settings will allow you to create dashes, or other shapes along the same pattern. Easy peasy!
