The PDFs can be used by most apps. You can convert them (they are vectors so they can be used with any size of work) into TIFF and PSD and other raster formats. You can load them in a variety of ways such as via the file open command but some may require loading via an insert command (perhaps in the object menu) or via a place / import command or perhaps via a gallery of symbols etc. Once loaded they can generally be used as powerful layers which can be used independently or combined with other objects in your image. They can be re-colored or turned into smart objects and smart filters (such as color effects or gradient effects from third parties) can be added along with the more traditional effects
You may find the bow tie fonts of interest and use with many different apps such as PS and PS Elements and Pages and Word and PSP etc
A recent addition to the Adobe ® Photoshop ®, "New guide from" command which can use any of the items on this page as source material. You can use a normal layer for this but you can also use any of the above sets to create additional guide lines that match the current height and width of the selected path. Very useful for creating interesting layouts, alignments and more. There is also a new guide layout feature as well as that doesn't use the paths but does create regular guides such as 4 x 4 or 12 x 12 or 12 x 8 and again, super useful for layouts etc and can also be useful for positioning the paths in PS
They can be used as is, they can be added to and modified in many ways but they can also be used as a great source for frames and edges. Open an image and then select the CSH tool and then select one of the artworks supplied in the set and then go to the layer / path / fill dropdown at the top of the application and select the path option. Add the vector to the image (central so the area you want to leave is covered by the vector path) and then go to the path panel and right side menu and convert to a selection and then you have the selection. Go to the select menu and invert the selection and then edit menu and fill with black or while or solid color or perhaps with Photoshop gradients to create a wonderful super frame for any image.
You can use them to create virtually anything. All for commercial use, all are CU4CU - use to create items for sale, use them to create personal items and much more. World wide use, royalty free, no credit is required and no time limits imposed. They can be re-colored, blended, modified, distorted, you can add effects or smart filters, you can export the images for use to other applications, you can use them as a source for amazing brushes and patterns and tiles, you can combine them with adjustment layers as well as plugins and smart filters (as a smart object). You can use them once or multiple times in any image.
You have the load the CSHs into Adobe ® Photoshop ® but perhaps you want to use them in Adobe AI ?? That is easy - simply use as a layer and copy and then paste in Adobe AI. If you want to use the vector graphic in other apps then that depends on the features of the app. Some can use PSD formats and that format includes vector data. Another option would be to use the export command and paths to Illustrator command which will save the vector data as an AI document (though I have experienced issues reading the AI documents). They can also be saved as raster files via the save for web or save as command. Save the imagery as TIFF or PSD or PNG
Keyboard shortcuts can be a great way of speeding up your workflow in PS. Say you want to quickly access the CSH tool then type U and the keyboard tool will be highlighted. You can also scroll through all the other tools by using the keyboard shortcut with shift held down Tutorial on how to use and change the keyboard shortcuts
The paths are supplied in CSH. To use them on a more permanent basis, place the CSHs n the presets folder 'custom shapes' of Adobe ® Photoshop ® or PS Elements. They can then be accessed via the right side menu of the panel for the tool. Once selected, they can then be used with the tool in Adobe ® Photoshop ® (as well as the cookie cutter in PSE). You can also double click the CSH, and this will load the set into the panel. You can also load them via the edit menu preset manager. In some versions of PS you can also use the open command.
You can take them and apply them either as layers or pixels (or even paths / selections) to create new images in multiple colors and with multiple styles, combine with effects such as blurring in Adobe ® Photoshop ® and then use the edit menu to define as a brush or pattern or save as a PSD and use as a displacement map. You can also create styles using a combination of patterns and the vectors. All can used in future projects. You can use one or multiple vectors to build more complex graphics to save as strokes or tiles.
