4 Ways to Use Adobe Capture Shape Tool

Adobe has continued to roll out updated features to Adobe Fresco and one of the latest is the Capture Shape Tool. As of this post there are 4 Capture Shape categories; “Comics”, “Typographic”, “Floral”, and the original “Berlin”.

Using Capture Shape Tool as a Stamp or Repeat Pattern

Select Capture Tool Icon on left side tool bar and choose the shape you want. I’ve chosen one from the Floral category.

Select a color and chose the Fill button on the bottom toolbar and select which fill option you prefer…I chose Pixel fill.

Move the shape tool to next location and select the Fill option again. If you want to change the size of the stamp or the color do you can do so before selecting Fill.

Using Capture Shape Tool and Brushes

Capture Shape Tool Icon and select your desired Shape.

Using any color fill in the shape with the Fill option on the bottom toolbar.

Chose the Select option on the bottom tool bar and marching ants will appear around the shape.

Turn off the layer and add a new later. You should see the marching ants without any color.

Select the brush of your choice and the color and paint over the selection. This will allow you to fill in the shape with your own texture and color.

Once done Deselect from the bottom toolbar.

Using Capture Shape Tool as a Cutout

Fill background with selected color.

Chose shape from Capture shape tool options and position where you want the cutout.

Select Erase on the bottom toolbar and the shape will cut into background color.

Using Capture Shape with Masks to Apply Color

Fill background with selected color.

Select Capture shape tool and chose shape.

Select Mask option on the bottom tool bar and the color will apply to the shape.

Select a brush and using the “Hide” and “Reveal” buttons on the bottom tool bar you can add texture or alter the original shape.
