    I never thought to use smaller brush sizes for the “half circled” edges. So simple when I think of it. Great tutorial to get some basics back in the “game” :)

    Hi Gabe, in first step when you create a rectangle using ‘regtangle tool’ onto your canvas, notice that a white highlight border is appearing around the vector mask thumbnail on my Shape layer.

    Vector Mask Thumbnail

    This is important because it means the shape’s vector mask is currently selected. The vector mask is what defines the look of the shape (the color swatch to the left of the vector mask thumbnail defines the color of the shape). If the vector mask is not selected, the Add, Subtract, Intersect and Exclude options will be grayed out and unavailable in the Options Bar. If you see them grayed out, check to make sure a white highlight border is appearing around the Shape layer’s vector mask thumbnail. If it’s not, click on the thumbnail to select it.
