    Very nice egg.  What version are you using?  I’m in CS2, and my Eliptical tool does not have a paths option.  Am I not seeing something I should be seeing?

      Thanks Dusan.
      I have used CS5 here.The path options should appear at the top left after you select the ‘elipse tool’.If you see a rectangle there, just press the tool and hold down the mouse key until you see the other shapes.(make sure that you are using the shape tool and not the marquee tool)
