    Design a mockup in photoshop

    Hi,
    I would like to design a PSD template. I have a question. Is there a difference to use the "rectangular marque tool" or the "rectangle tool" to create a block? For example to create a block for the header or the footer. Which one do you recommend? Is a matter of taste?
    I would be grateful for any help! Thanks!

    HI,

    If you create a block using marquee tool, it's a raster block. If you resize the block you get the distortion.

    If you create a block using Rectangle tool, it's vector block. You can easily resize it without any distortion.

    So, it's better if you create the block using Rectangle tool.

    Hope this helps,
    Cheers,

    If you are using selections then it tends to become a process of adding and subtracting the basic shapes (curved/straight) to get the right 'shape' you are after.

    Often times it is easier to draw shapes with the path tool/quick shapes and covert them to a marquee/selection if you'd rather go that way.

    HI,

    Create a rectangle selection using marquee tool.
    Now Select form the top menu "Select>>Modify>>Smooth".
    Apply the amount required for the roundness.

    Also, if you want rounded blurred edges, you can try the "Feather" effect. For a crisp round corner, use the smooth method.
