Abstract photoshop shapes / Cookie cutter / PS Elements

They can be used as standard graphics in Elements but they can also be used as cookie cutters as well. Select the cookie cutter tool found in the toolbox and then you will see the various options on the top options bar such as the path (which can be any of the vector CSH path) as well as feathering and crop (which will crop the entire document to the size of the vector).


If the crop is not set to ON then the result is placed in the original location (feathered or not) with the full document and all the outside image removed. While applying the cookie cutter in PSE, you can constrain the proportions (horizontal / vertical) of the cookie cutter as well as scale / shear / rotate etc.


Once you have the exciting cookie cutter, you can always re-apply another cookie cutter to chop even more away from the work.


You can use the result as a wonderful source for strokes as well as patterns. You can also add PS Element effects (such as blurs etc) to the cookie cutter. If you want to have the original image as well as cookie cutter then before using the tool, simply duplicate the layer as many times as you wish and use the cookie cutter on those (in different locations if you wish) and you can then also combine those multiple cut layers using blending modes such as difference to create some truly wonderful images.

Abstract Photoshop shapes Video tutorials

You can find out more about them via the graphicxtras video channel where you can see how to load them, how to distort them, how to warp, how to re-color, how to change the points, how to edit in Adobe AI, how to combine with others and much more. Any questions, please contact us on support@graphicxtras.com and I will try and create a number of videos on the subject.

Perspective warp and Abstract Photoshop shapes

They can be distorted using the perspective warp. If you create a layer and then go to the edit menu and try and select the perspective warp, it is disabled. You can get around this by going to the layer menu and converting the artwork into a smart object and then go back to the edit menu and perspective warp, it works. You can then add pins to the art in the layout mode. You can create basic layouts but you can create grids and vertical cutting effects as well as disjointed warp layouts.


Once you have finished, you can click the warp button and warp the path (still a vector and still very editable) in many ways by moving the pins to the right and left and up and down etc. Click OK to finish.


As the item is a smart object and the smart filter "perspective warp" is still active, you can still modify the underlying decorative path (or replace the contents). You can also re-apply the smart object and create a smart object made up of the path and perspective warp and then warp that as well (and repeat as required). You can also apply layer styles such as shadows to the warp and distort that in numerous ways to create some truly weird and wonderful distorted shadows and bevelled work.

Loading the abstract Photoshop shapes

How to load the them ?? The file set comes in a CSH and you can double click that set to load them into Adobe PS - they are added to the existing set of presets.


You can also right click the CSH presets and select the open option to load them. They are loaded into the palette, leaving all the existing vectors. They can also be double clicked and loaded into the palette.


A better solution is to place the CSH presets into the presets folder of Adobe PS and others and then access them via the right side menu of the preset palette. You can load / replace (and browse for the file set) as well as select the file to load.


You can also use the edit menu preset manager in many versions of the application. Once loaded, they are then accessible to the palette and can be selected and applied as required.


You can also now open the CSH files in Illustrator by using the ArtBlue plugin from Amazon Canvas (as well as use some of the tool's powerful path manipulation tools)
