Fred the Freddler

Rubbish tutorial. I don’t know at which level this tutorial is aimed at, but the author is assuming that anyone having a go at this tutorial knows exactly where all the tools, and facilities, in photoshop are. In short very hard to follow, not very good in fact

I agree, im struggling to understand how they got the second vector shape (subtraction) perfectly centered inside the other vector shape. This is step 1 and 2!
Needs a better breakdown.
