I am looking for help in making a segmented ring effect in Photoshop.
Any idea would be highly appreciated.
I agree with JohnB. It would still be easy with Illustrator plus your icon is going to be scalable and it won’t show pixels.
Anyway, the Photoshop way: (Please take note that there are a lot of ways of doing it. This is how I would do it)
First, make a circle:
Then, duplicate your first circle then change the second circle’s color to white:
Then scale the new circle down just a little bit:
Grab your Lasso Tool;
Then draw a triangle-shaped selection according to your desired size of it:
Then make sure you are on your colored circle layer, then hit delete or backspace on your keyboard to delete the selected portion. Hit
**ctrl+D** to deselect that portion you just selected
Add in your text and your done:
I hope this helps!
