Button shapes for Photoshop export

You have the shape decorative graphic in PS but you want to use the shape in Adobe AI, well that is easy - simply apply the shape as a shape layer and copy and then paste in Adobe AI. Really depends on the application. Some applications can use PSD format and the shape formats included as vector data.


Another way would be to use the export command and paths to Illustrator which saves the data as an AI Illustrator file (though I have experienced issues reading the AI documents at a later date). 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 or another format


drop shadow added to the image

They can be used with styles such as drop shadows
