Before you start placing triangles make sure you turn off ANT-Allas. To start, select and place a triangle from where you think it should fit. Then build along forming each of the triangles points to connect them until you have completed the picture you wanted to make!

To make it faster, you can use actions! Actions is a powerful tool which lets you record your clicks from actions in Photoshop and then you can use the action script it makes to reuses again. This make it more efficient and doesn’t waste as much time when using actions for specific things. Make sure you set the action to a FKey like F2-F12 to make it even faster to start the action!
