a semi circle

Ellipse * * * * * At right angles to the length, it would be a circle. Along the length it would be a rectangle. Only a diagonal cross section would be an ellipse.

A rectangle is a four-sided shape, a parallelogram. Since a rhombus is a parallelogram then it is also a rectangle in a sense. Along with a square, it is a type of rectangle.

The custom shapes tool can be found in the Photoshop toolbox. You will find it on the same tool icon as the rectangle tool along with ellipse, polygon, line. The 'custom' shapes tool is at the bottom of the list and you then need to select a shape from the shapes palette. Once selected, the shape can be applied as a shape layer, path or fill pixels. Set the color via the foreground color option.

you use SOHCAHTOA to work out whether you need to use sine or cosine (as you already have the hypotenuse) you then use the diagonal as the hypotenuse and use the equation of either: sin(angle)=missing side/diagonal cos(angle)=missing side/diagonal you then take the answer and mark it on the two sides that it applies to. you use the value you just found along with the diagonal in the Pythagoras theorem equation (in this case it will be b2 = diagonal2-other side2). you then have the value of every side so you just add them all together.
