Butterfly custom shapes and Photoshop Elements' Cookie cutter

They can be used as standard paths 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 also 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 just placed in the original location (feathered or not) with the full document and all the image outside of the cookie cutter removed.


While applying the cookie cutter in PSE, you can constrain the proportions as well as rotate and scale and shear. Once you have the cookie cutter shape, you can always re-apply another cookie cutter to chop even more away. You can use the end result as a wonderful source for strokes as well as patterns. You can also use visual effects to the cookie cutter results.



If you want to have the original image as well as cookie cutter shape 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 and darken. See many different cookie cutter related videos as well as shape and PSE ones via the graphicxtras video channel.
