After downloading the .zip file, just extract the files to a folder and open index.html

This is a simple Vector Tutorial for Adobe Photoshop (focusing on CS2 but most settings apply for previous versions).

It covers:
Basics: The basics as to how to use the Pen Tool,
Designs: Vector use in designs,
Extraction: Using shapes to extract an image from its background, and
Colouring: The different ways of colouring using vectors.

If you have any queries as to what is covered, just send me a note or leave a comment.

Please Note that this is merely the way I use vectors in Photoshop; you are perfectly entitled to doing things your own way, as there are so many possibilities.

Thank you to *Della-Stock and ~temabinastock for use of their stock.

I downloaded your vector tutorial, and i open the index.html
and th eimages don't seem to work. Me being a visual
learner find it kinda difficult to follow along without the images. =/

Did you extract all the files into a folder before opening the html ?
