View Full Version : Setting Up for 2 Point Perspective!!!

10 October 2003, 07:09 AM
Hey guys, working at school on 2 point architecture drawings, and I know PS7 can snap to grid but is there away of having it snap at two different angles like 30deg. and 60deg. opposed to the default 45deg.?

while rotating an object, holding the cntrl key, I believe, will snap to the 30, 45, 60 for you.

Shift Key isnt it? (I think)

Also you can enter the value...(see image)

Sweet guys thanks for the brisk reply, your comments do indeed solve my problems and answer my question but it's really time consuming, is there a way to set it up to snap whilst drawing lines say for example; therefore skipping the rotating altogether?

no there's no set of options that customized in photoshop. the only options that I can think of is to use the brush tool and hold shift while you're painting with that.... or use the line tool and just hit ctrl + t and rotate the edges while holding shift (does 15 degree increments) other than that there isn't anything else.

hmm...if you using perspective then your angles will be different across the page....i assume your using orthorgraphic so all your angles are constant?

what you can try if thats the case is drawing paths at those angles and then move them around and draw over them...i know its not ideal, but i dont know any other way...shift key only constrains to 45deg increments...:(
