    Some Photoshop help.

    Angles and Photoshop.

    I'm redoing our School crest.

    In the crest are three circles that look similar to the attachment; which I just knocked up in paint to show what I mean.
    Trouble being I can't for the life of me work how to draw an angle of my choosing. Holding 'shift' allows me to draw perfectly straight lines, or lines at a 45 degree angle; but that isn't much help to me. Is their a way I can draw a line at a custom angle? and if so, how?

    Thanks very much.

    I'm no whizz with photoshop, but could you draw a line that is horizontal and then 'free transform' it, entering the angle you require in the bar at the top?

    Yep, I too would draw a straight line then rotate with Free Tranform as well. If you have the Info panel (F8) open it will display the angle as you rotate.

    Here is a video of how I would do it. I found doing it this way gives more flexibility with giving the background and chevron different colours.
