How to cut of rectangle shape to create bracket in Photoshop?

I want a layer like this:

enter image description here

I’ve drawn the rectangle then I made a selection with the marquee selection tool to delete a part of the rectangle but it deleted whole shape. Can anyone please help me out with this.

Thanks in advance.


Short answer:

Mask those parts out with a layer mask.

Black to hide, white to reveal.

Use black on the parts you want to get rid of.

Long answer:

After you’ve created the rectangular shape, add a layer mask (located in the bottom of the layers panal, looks like a rectangle with a circle in the middle).

Make a rectangular selection through out the middle of the rectangle.
Fill that recangular selection with black on the layer mask.

Now you should have the desired effect.
