Hi, my name is Alex Cecilio. I'm a Graphic Artist and I'm going to show you how to draw with a rectangular tool in Photoshop. There's a bunch of different options that come with the rectangle tool and with the shape tool in general, but, in drawing the, with it, there's, like I said, a bunch of different cool styles. There's a glass buttons for example; these ones are pretty cool. But, if you're going to draw, for example, if you want to draw a rectangle but you wanted to have a border around it, and when you don't want this style anymore, just click this style on this little right hand arrow, hold that down and say no style. So, that's going to be white. Alright. So then, now, select your shape, go to effects and then go, go to effects and then go to stroke and this will just add a line around your square. So, if you want it, if you want this is a border or whatever. The rectangle tool does play a really good part in this, it's like a border maker and it also can be used as a text box. Let me show you. As, now, I've got my rectangle made and if you select the type tool and you click your shape with the type tool, it'll usually let you write, write inside of it. And if you want to change the color, just double click on your layer and just select the color and it'll change it automatically. My name is Alex and this is how you draw with the rectangle tool in Photoshop. Thank you.
