    Ok, I can do alot of stuff in photoshop right now, but one thing has been bugging me...

    How do you draw just a straight line...like in MS Paint? I can't figure out for the life of me.

    I feel so embarassed...:oops:

    Select a pencil/brush or whatever.

    Click on the surface with your mouse button and hold it, press SHIFT key and hold it, draw the line either vertically or horizontally.

    Same goes for Photoshop.

    Of course it's easy. It's a wonder that's not one of the first things you did in PS.

    Are you using 6 or 7? out of curiosity...
