basic shapes palette custom for Photoshop mixed artwork

They can be applied via the custom shape tool found in the Photoshop toolbox. Once you have selected the shape tool, the shape palette is displayed and the works can be added to the palette via the right side menu of the palette. In some versions of Adobe PS and others, you can load the shapes via the open command as well. The shapes are displayed as thumbnails - large or small (I really wish there was a way to increase the size of the palette thumbnails).


Select the basic shapes and then apply the basic shape (such as stars, ring shapes etc) either as a shape layer or path / selection or fill pixel - this is set via the option bar along the top of Photoshop. The shapes can be colored via the foreground tool. With CS6, the shape layers can also be colored via the option bar which now allows you to add more complex colors such as gradients or patterns as a fill as well as strokes and more complex stroke options such as dashes and gaps as well as different alignment of the stroke. The basic vectors can be combined, modified, transformed, warped and more
