Hi, my name is Alex Cecilio. I'm a Graphic Artist. I'm going to show you how to make a t-shirt template in Photoshop. So, the first thing I've done is I've actually added a grid. I'm going to show you how to do that. You go to view, show grid, it'll bring up the grid. The way I'm going to do this is I'm going to use the pen tool which is right below the burn tool. And not the freeform pen tool but the pen tool. And so, I'm just going to start off by making the collar and then, oops, so then, it's going to show this and then, I'm going to, we really want this to be short and so that when you make a line next to it, it doesn't bend as much to give a pencil little look. So, basic t-shirt template, oops, and then, alright. So, now what I'm going to do is I'm going to right click and select stroke path and then just say okay. Actually, no, I'm going to change the size, change your brush if you can because if you're going to simulate the brush, you're going to want a good brush size. And then, I'm going to go up to the pen tool, right click stroke path, okay. Alright. So, now, I've got my t-shirt and then, I'm going to use the move tool to, I'm going to hold down option and then a double arrow will show up. I'm just going to drag it, oh you have, you have to delete your path too. Right click and say, delete path. I'm going to show you how to fill this up, because if you fill your stroke path on a white layer, it's going to attach itself to the white. So, make sure you're on the transparent layer when you do it. Stroke path and then delete it, delete path. Use the move tool, hold down option, see a double arrow, pull it and use your marquee tool, right click, go to free transform. Click again, flip horizontal and then you've got a t-shirt template. But, you can also erase that if it's kind like too thick. And you can also erase this way. My name is Alex and this is how you make a t-shirt template in Photoshop. Thank you.
