ok people this might be a stupid question but i cant do this so i need somebodys help.

i have photoshop 9 and im trying to make one of those ipod silhouettes pics, im doing it by a tutorial, but the tutorial im following is based on a mac and i have a regular pc, now the question is that it says Command-Click a layer and im hitting alt instead of command but its not working for me, it used to work b4 i upgraded to photoshop 9, it might be just that im hitting the wrong key. can anybody help me find the right key.




if this doesnt belong here please move it

id just try doing all the buttons you would think it could be. or you could tell us the action you were trying ti perform by command clicking. i know if you select something with the marquee tool then alt-click it will select the shape area.

yeah im gonna do that now cause i dont want all the work i did up to the point where i stopped to be go to waste

btw heres the older one i did on ps8 with the macmerc tutorial, i sucked with the pen tool so i couldnt do the strings right but i liked that it showed a little bit of my face

the pen tool is one that saves your life sometimes, but it can also stab you over and over again. makin french curves with the pen is why i love it so much. did the tut ask you to mask yourself off? or did you select the person then put a low octipacy black layer of yourself? seems theres numerous ways to creates a ipod silloute. hardest part does seem to make the string appear to be effected by gravity which would be difficult.

ive tried learning how to use the pen tool cause i know its very useful but i cant find a way, as for the tut its really hard to explain wat its asking me to do unless u do the whole tutorial and already know wat u did if u hit the link i stopped at the part after Cleanup and Edge Touchup

Back when I was using Photoshop CS all of my tool shortcuts were erased for some reason. Since there was no way to reset it that I could find (without using a shortcut that had ALSO been deleted) I ended up installing the newer version. Reinstalling Photoshop CS2 could fix your problem.

(I'd also recommend getting a better portable music device.) Hahahahahahahahaha!! :D :D
