Creating a scratchy texture in Photoshop ...
The noise gradient feature of Photoshop can be used to create interesting scratchy textures. Combining multiple applies of noise gradients with different blending modes, you can create unique and stunning hi-impact rough scratchy texture - perfect for hair, horror designs and more. Find out about one or two methods via the article link above.
Polar grid tool in Illustrator...
The polar grid tool is fairly overlooked (as with the flare tool). It can be used to create a variety of interesting designs such as rings, concentric circles, slices, colorful filled grids and more. The polar grid in Illustrator can be combined, effects can be applied, the designs can be exported, the polar grids can be warped and transformed and much more. Read about some of the features of the polar grid tool via the article link above.
Flare tool in Illustrator...
The flare tool is probably one of the more ignored tools in Illustrator (CS6 or CS5 etc) but it a gem and really should be checked out and tried and explored. The flare tool can be found under the rectangle tool in the Illustrator toolbox. It is a two part tool in that you create the initial flare and then the rings, can't think of any other tool that works this way in Illustrator. The rings can be applied in any direction away from the initial flare (which cannot be totally removed, which I find odd - there really should be a checkbox to remove the initial flare and just leave the rings. Find out more about the flare tool via the article link above
Astute software 'Vectorscribe' review for Illustrator ...
This is an amazing product from Astute Software. The review was written when the product was working for Illustrator CS5 but the recent release has now updated the plugin for use in Illustrator CC CS6 (all third party plugins had to be updated because of changes to the interface and for other reason, my own plug-ins included). The new plug-in set works with the 32bit version as well as the 64 bit version. The plug-in works just as well and combined with the new releases such as widthscribe and colliderscribe from Astute, even more amazing designs and effects can be created using the plugin set. Again, a truly superb plug-in and one you should really check out - there is a demo set available on the Astute website. Find out more about the plugin via the link above.
Astute software 'Drawscribe' review for Illustrator ...
Yet another first rate product from Astute software for the manipulation of paths. The review was written when the plugin set was for CS5 as well as CS4 etc, the product has recently been updated for use with Illustrator CC CS6. The plugin, like Vectorscribe' works amazingly well in combo with the other plug-ins from Astute as well as the plugins native to Illustrator. The plug-in set is available in a 32 bit and 64 bit version. Would definitely recommend that you check out their demo of Drawscribe or at least check out their large selection of video tutorials on the subject. Find out more about drawscribe via the link above.

Photoshop CC / CS6 shapes - 3D features
In Photoshop CC / CS6, the custom shapes can be flat shapes (as always) but they can also be used in 3D. In fact, they make pretty decent 3D tools. Select a custom shape (any from graphicxtras.com or otherwise) and then go to the 3D menu or go to the 3D palette (either works well but the 3D palette is probably easier as all the options are in one place. The 3D shape can be turned into a 3D postcard, 3D extrusion, used as a mesh (added to a cone, cube wrap, donut, hat, pyramid etc), 3D volume and a 3D mesh from depth map (plane, two sided, cylinder, sphere). The generated 3D shape can be manipulated in millions of different ways, materials can be added as can different renders (the custom shape can be turned into a sketched or cartoon design). The generated 3D shape can also be exported as OBJ and other file formats and then be used in powerful applications such as Poser or Carrara and 3D studio Max.
One word of warning though, if you are on the creative cloud and you upgrade to 16.1, you might notice the 3D menu is no longer available (as I have found out to my cost). One machine is fine, another (a lot older machine) sadly hasn't got the required video memory and the menu is disabled. A real pity as the 3D worked fine with just 256MB but now, 512MB seems to be the minimum. So be aware of this if you upgrade your Photoshop to the latest and greatest. It is still a fine upgrade with some nice new features such as CSS copy for shapes and text.
Corel PSP shapes and fonts
Until recently, developed lots and lots of PSPshape sets for use in PaintShop Pro X5 X4 X3 etc. Instead of developing more and more preset shapes format files, created more and more font sets. It is very easy to convert the font designs from TTF text into standard pspshapes format - simply right click the text design and use the displayed menu to convert the vector shape into a preset shape format. You can use the font shapes also in 1000s of other applications so they are not just limited to PSP
