I need to update a map manually (road directions), and want to place a 'route' on it, that is shown as a red dots.

Is there a way to draw, or use 'lines' so that red dots appear, instead of me drawing the dots one by one...

What version of PS? It used to be easy, but is much harder in CS4.

Its fairly easy to do

1. Select the Brush Tool, the from the Brush Options select a hard edged brush

2. Press F5 to open the Photoshop Brush palette. In the Brush palette turn off/untick/uncheck the Smoothing and Shape Dynamics options

3. Click on the "Brush Tip Shape" line to reselect the brush, and drag the Spacing slider to somewhere over 100 percent.

4. Now select the Color Picker and select a Red color.

Paint with your brush and it will lay down red dots. Based on the Spacing selected you'll end up with something like the illustration below.
