I don't have access to Illustrator so I am stuck using Photoshop at the moment. I would like to divide a rectangle with a diagonal line and have each half a different color. This is very easy to do in Illustrator but somehow the method evades me in Photoshop. Can someone help please?
Ok this one is off the top of my head...there should be a better method.
Select the polygonal lasso tool. Create a line along the top edge, then down one of the sides then diagonally to connect to your starting point. You will have a triangular selection. Create a new layer and fill the selection with a colour. Repeat for the other half of the rectangle.
If the rectangle is square, use a 3 sided polygon tool and hold down shift. Drag out the triangle to whatever size you want. Duplicate the layer and flip vertically and horizontally.Fill each triangle with the color of your choice. You might have to adjust the layer positioning to fit them together.
aaa... call me radically extreme, but... isn't this as simple as using the line tool to draw the diagnal line across your rectangle, then using the Paint Bucket to fill each half with your desired colour... it's not a complicated task... really...
