DartboardIn this video I explore the uses of the Photoshop Transform command to help lay out the framework for a dartboard. The transform command is used to correctly space all the wires and to keep all the circles concentric.

  2. Hi Gareth, When you select the line tool make sure its set to ‘Shape’ in the top left hand corner 🙂

    Hi Eric

    I take it you did this in PS CS6 extended.
    I have CS6 but not extended.
    But I do have CS5Exteneded.
    Is it the same in CS5E?

  4. Hi Martin,
    This was done in CS6 Extended, but I used nothing that is only in the extended version. The technique to make the circles is slightly different now in CS6 in that we can add strokes and gradients (I talk a little more about this in “Using Photoshop to Make Concentric Circles” http://goo.gl/ZFUzu)

    The technique of step and repeat has been in Photoshop for many versions, exactly when it was introduced I’m not sure. The reduction in size, again has been around for as long as I can remember too.

    Hope this helps, Eric

  5. This is a wonderful post. I liked the tutorial. The shape layer is unique to work on. Thanks for sharing this post.
