Hi. I'm using PhotoShop CS3 and I want to create a perfectly round circle from the centre. How do you do this?

 

I know pressing shift while dragging makes it perfectly round. I've also read that pressing alt at the same time draws it from the centre, but it's not working, it just comes up with the eyedropper tool. Am I missing something or is there a different way to do it?

 

Thanks.

Try starting to draw the circle first BEFORE you press the Alt key.

When I played with it in CS6 and CS5.1, I found that if I press the Option key (I am using a Mac...it is that same as the Alt key in Windows) BEFORE I started to draw the circle, then I got the eyedropper. This happened whether I had the Shift key press as well or not.

If, OTOH, I actually started to draw the circle (i.e. ellipse with Shift key held down) and THEN pressed the Option key (Alt key in Windows), then it centered the circle on the point where I started drawing.

clicking on circle will also open a dialogue where you can set the width and height if you're looking for something specific.
