How do I create perspective guides in Photoshop?
Tony Winterburn, England
There are probably a dozen or so ways to go about making perspective tools for yourself in Photoshop. The following method has worked well for me in that it’s flexible, editable and makes use of a toolset that’s similar to Adobe’s Illustrator.
Other programs have some nifty perspective tools built in (particularly SketchBook Pro) and later versions of Photoshop may have addressed this need, but the following use of the Pen tool and Paths can be applied to almost any version of the software, regardless of its vintage.
What you create with the Pen tool is equivalent to making vanishing points on paper, with their corresponding guides, zooming away to their respective point. However, making them in Photoshop makes them considerably more flexible.
Knowing that the Pen tool can create points with connecting lines without generating pixels is the key to this method. Additionally, understanding the difference between the black selection arrow (for selecting whole paths) and the white selection arrow (for selecting the constituent parts of a path) is essential.
This ship design is pretty basic, but the volumes and angles are more or less correct, thanks to the use of the Pen tool.
