Did you know that you could easily make a hexagon or a triangle shape (or a shape with up to 100 sides for that matter) in Photoshop? Click-and-hold on the Rectangle tool (U) in the Toolbar, and then choose the Polygon tool from the flyout menu. By default it will make a pentagon (five-sided shape). With the tool active, look at the Options Bar at the top, and you’ll see an option that says Sides. Change this number to 6 for a hexagon, 3 for a triangle, etc. Click the gear icon and turn on the Star option to
create concave shapes, such as stars.
