Photoshop chevron shapes - CSH Presets / PDFs

You can use the CSH presets only in Adobe PS and elements, the format can be used in a few other browser tools but I am not aware of any other application that can read the artwork. The CSH presets is stored in version 6 format (which is a very old format now) but it is readable in all versions up to the latest, CC 2014. You can read and load them in all of the creative suite versions as well as the standalone versions of the application.


PDFs, they can be used in many other apps as well as just Adobe PS and Elements.

Chevron PDFs in Creative cloud libraries

With the latest release of Creative Cloud 2014.2 (October 2014) release you can now open the PDF files and then save them to the new creative cloud libraries - simply drag the file from the document and to the library and then the PDF will be available as a future resource. The same work will be available on other machines as well as other OS (PC or Mac) as well as in Illustrator. You can save all of the PDFs to the library and have them immediately available instead of loading each via the open command.

How to load the chevron shapes into Photoshop ?

There are a number of approaches to loading the CSH presets into Adobe PS and the easiest is probably the double click approach and that will load all the current set into the application and will co-exist with the previous CSHs installed.


You can also right click the file and you should (if the file association is still valid) be able to select the file and load that (or open).


For future use, it is probably best to place the CSH presets into the presets folder marked 'custom shapes' and then the set can be accessed via the right side menu of the presets palette in Adobe PS.

You can also right click the same menu and load / replace the CSH but it does mean that you have to browse for the files if you have not placed the CSH presets in the presets folder. The replace command removes all the existing CSH vectors. To return to the default, use the preset command. Another way to load the CSH presets into Adobe PS is via the edit menu preset manager.


You can find a number of videos on the subject of opening the CSH presets via the graphicxtras channel on Youtube.

Video tutorials

blur effects - a video to show how to use them to create truly unique blurring effects in Adobe PS, they can also be modified and new graphics can be created which in turn can be used as a source for new themed blurring effects. There are also many additional videos available about the CSH and PDFs on the graphicxtras channel on youtube - if there are any particular questions, please let us know and we will create a video on the subject. Source for brick fill patterns - a quick video showing some of the options and how you can create them for use with the scripted pattern tool.


They can be an excellent source for millions of unique tiles.

Shape blurs

The vectors can be used to create truly amazing blurs in Adobe PS.


You can use them in the shape blur filter found in filter menu (under the blurs section). blur tool uses the path along with the radius or strength of the effect. I always find the tool a little extreme if the setting is set too high - basically you can't see much but blur if it is too high. The best approach seems to be to use with low settings and re-apply a number of times to create a distinct form that sort of loosely matches the path.


colorful path red green etc


They can be applied in any color such as red, green etc


You can also combine the effect with selections which can also dampen the end result and leave more of the image. As with many of the Adobe PS filters, you can also apply the effect to a duplicated layer and then blend the end result with the original; or use the fade option found in the edit menu.


You can also apply the shape blur effect as a smart object which means you can always alter the effect at any point as well as combine multiple blurs (though it should be noted that the effect is not the quickest so unless you have a super powerful machine it is probably not a good idea to go for more than a few blurs). You can also apply the effect over channels via the channel palette which does create very weird and wonderful colorful smearing of the stripes.


There are numerous other ways to use the tool to create stand out work. There are many videos on my youtube graphicxtras channel showing potential ideas for the blur effect such as combining with the blur (how I would love to see the tool included in that) along with art history and other options in Adobe PS. Sadly, the shape blur is not available in PS Elements

Export Chevron Photoshop shapes to other applications

You don't have to keep them only for use in Adobe PS. You can use them in other applications such as Corel PaintShop Pro, GIMP, Xara, Xpress and many more. If you use them as a shape layer then you can also copy and paste into Illustrator or use the export command to export the path as an AI document to be opened in some vector applications such as Inkscape or DRAW.


You can also just apply them as a pixel / raster image and then save them as a PSD or TIFF image and open that file in PSP and other applications. As the shape is a vector, you can make the file size of your raster export any size - say 10000 x 10000 and then import that graphic.


You can also use the decorative graphic to create strokes and tiles in Adobe PS and others and export any of those. You can also use them more than once to perhaps build a far more complex graphic and then export that to another application.


You can save them as a PSB file as well via smart objects if you are using the latest versions of creative cloud. Or use visual effects and then export.

Flames and chevron Photoshop shapes

If you are using the latest release of the creative cloud then you can access the new flame tool and this is available via the filter render menu. The flame tool can be combined with a current selected path (any of the vectors included on this page) and you can then create multiple types of flames around the edge of the path. You can also add the flame to a layer which can then be shifted and combined and duplicated. You can also run the flame render multiple times to create a whole range of exciting fire themed images.


The tree tool also can use the path so you can then also wrap trees around the image. You can use the tree feature to create some truly abstract and weird and wonderful art (something not particularly achievable with the flame render).


low opacity and watermarks


They can be used as watermarks in Adobe PS and elements etc by using the opacity at 10% etc

Chevron custom shapes and channels

The CSH presets can be used on a single RGB image but you can also use them with separate channels. You can use them in the red channel and ignore all the others or perhaps add them in different channels in different positions and different sizes or combine them with effects in different channels.


You can also use the channel palette to split the image into a red image, green etc and then you can add the vectors to them in those files before merging all the results back into a new RGB image via the merge command found in the palette.


You can also repeat the same action over other image modes and individual channels so you can apply them to the lightness channel and A and B channels of the LAB image mode etc
