I don’t know if anyone but me notices, but I like to tweak the Great Seal of Deke at the top of every newsletter to reflect the contents within. By default, that little icon at the top of the circle is actually a literal seal. (Our web guys who designed the Great Seal have the same goofy sense of humor we do. For this edition, I wanted a front-facing version of our PhotoshopMobile, but alas, Photoshop’s custom shapes panel doesn’t have any cool camper vans, let alone one facing forward. So I sketched up what I wanted for Deke and he actually drew it for me in Illustrator.
And should I need such an icon in the future, I learned from Chapter 22 of the new course that I can save it fairly easily to the “Vehicles” section of my Shapes panel. Look how much cooler it is than all those other shapes! Thanks, Deke. (And Photoshop!) And because you can edit it like any other vector-based shape in Photoshop, you can customize it to any need or cargo you might wish.
