If you want a nice : symmetrical shape, you can try this: : : 1) create your basic rectangle in an image document (we'll call this image : a) and fill it with your foreground color. : 2) create a new image document (image b) : 3) Make a rectangle and fill it with the background color you want to use in : image a. : 4)Go to image>rotate canvas>arbitrary and rotate image b until it slants the : way you want one of the sides in image a to slant. : 5) Copy this rectangle and paste it onto a new layer (we'll call it layer 2) : in image a. : 6) Return to image b. : 7) Go to image>rotate canvas>flip horizontal and flip image b horizontally. : 8) Copy this rectangle and paste it onto yet another new layer (we'll call : it layer 3) in image a. : 9) adjust layers 2 and 3 in image a until your rectangle looks the way you : want it to look. : : Or better yet, use Illustrator (or any other vector illustration program) : instead.
