Loading contour shapes into Photoshop

The contour shapes are all in CSH format. The easiest way to load them is by placing the CSH in the shapes folder of Photoshop and Photoshop Elements and access the shapes file via the palette right side menu dropdown. You should also be able to load the CSH file and the shapes into the palette via the file open command which will add the Photoshop contour shapes to the palette for selection and use throughout the application. You can also use the edit preset manager tool in most recent versions of the application.

Layer Effects / Photoshop

A different kind of contour but a contour all the same - this time via the layer effects dialog in Photoshop. Select the bevel section (and I have set the bevel size large so the contour can be clearly seen) and then access the contour sub-section

 

default bevel contour

 

The default contour is above - a basic flat line.

If you set the contour shape to a flat shape then no contour appears. To edit the contour shape, just click the contour dropdown and you will see the current contour points. They can be edited in numerous ways and you can multiple points to the existing curve. The one issue that does seem to occur is there appears at times to be limits (such as corner corner points) and then again if you apply the design as all curves and then turn them into corner points, you can exceed the number of points to the contour. As the contour depends on the bevel size for the contour to actually be seen, sometimes for very small bevel paths, it really isn't a great idea to add too many points anyway.

A wide variety of different contour shapes can be created such as adding in a plateau (a flat contour surrounded by jagged points)

Or a double plateau bevel by having two flats in the contour mapping

Or invert the contour - still got a plateau but it is now the center of the bevel with a tiny ridge where there was once a valley. Sadly there is no feature to invert the shape within the dialog (such as in some of the other effects). Also, it would be wonderful if there was a way to import an open path from vector applications thus allowing for some truly weird and wonderful contour designs.

You can still load and save the contours, a SHC format.
