Arrow shapes videos tutorials
You can find all our videos about the custom shapes on the graphicxtras channel on youtube (there are lots of videos).
You can combine multiple shapes and arrow designs and convert that layer into a smart object, from there you can convert to linked format (PSB) and save the art in situ for future projects. Re-import via the place command. Now, this has sort of been superseded by the powerful resource tool, libraries with the Creative Cloud Oct 2014 update.
Arrow custom shapes for Adobe ® Photoshop
The arrow custom shapes are all vectors for any size of work. They are all stored in native Photoshop CSH and can be loaded into Photoshop via the open command as well as via the edit menu and also via the custom shapes palette load / replace commands. The Photoshop arrow shapes come in a vast range of different styles such as warped, multiples, blended, basic, crooked, weird and much more.
They can all be used via the Photoshop (and elements) toolbox custom shapes tool as well as via the Elements' cookie cutter tool also found in the PS toolbox. The arrow shapes can also be used with the powerful shape blur tool that can be used to create truly awesome blurring effects.
You can use them as fills / pixels as well as paths as well as layers
They can be re-colored (they don't have to be just black) and they can be merged with other elements as well as blended, smudged, effects applied as well as exported to other applications. The Photoshop shapes can be used once or multiple times in the same image. The arrow shapes can also be used to create even more amazing resources for Adobe ® Photoshop and as the arrow shapes are vectors they can be used to create resources of any size.
The arrow custom shapes can be used as standard shapes in Elements but they can also be used as cookie cutters as well. Select the cookie cutter tool 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) as well as feathering and crop (which will crop the entire document to the size of the graphic). If the crop is not set to ON then the result is just placed in the previous location with the document and all the image outside of the cookie cutter region erased.
While applying the cookie cutter in PSE, you can constrain the proportions of the vector as well as shear, rotate and scale the item. Once you have the cookie cutter shape, you can always re-apply another arrow (or any other) cookie cutter to remove even more. You can use the end result as a wonderful source for strokes as well as patterns. You can also use special effects to the cookie cutter such as blurs and filter gallery effects.
If you want to have the original image as well as cookie cutter shape then before using the tool, simply duplicate the vector path 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 and darken and lighten etc
