You can load them by selecting the CSH file and right clicking that and selecting open or double clicking the CSH file. You can also just place the CSH in the presets folder and then access the CSH by name via the right side menu and you can use the same menu to reset the artworks back to the factory default as well as load any set of CSH files (appending to the existing within limits) and replacing the existing set - you can also use the same menu to save the existing set as a new CSH format file.
You can also go to the preset menu in the panel and select the load / replace commands; the same can be done via the edit menu preset manager. You can also load the CSH files via the Tumasoft preset breeze tool.
You can also load them into Illustrator via the superb ArtBlue plugin from Amazon Canvas
Are you interested in the related themed brushes for use with PS and PS Elements as well as GIMP and others ? or perhaps crescent fonts ?
How do I find out more about the product ?? Via our video channel on Youtube.com (via the graphicxtras channel) as well as via the TipDesk website and also on Vimeo.
You can see how to use them, how to load them, use them as a smart object, use them in different channels and different image modes, how to use with smart adjustments / smart filters, how to export them, how to warp, how to combine, how to use them with text, how to use as a layer, how to copy to Affinity Photo and much more
You can use them as is but the vectors make a great choice for all kinds of other assets such as textures and brushes and fonts as well as patterns and displacement maps and much more. How you create them into those formats will vary as you can just create a single vector and then save those as a stroke / tile etc but you can use them in different colors, use them in different sizes, use them with rotation and sheared and warped, or with effects added as well as other paths added such as adding spots to the vector artwork - all can then be used as a new asset such as a brush. How to define the vector as a stroke, simply go to the edit menu and define command.
You can do the same if you wish to define the crescent shapes as a pattern design. You can also save any generated artwork as a PSD file and then use that as a displacement maps / glass distortion / texture.
If you have Fontlab (a truly excellent app) then you can copy the vector artwork via Illustrator into FL and then save all the glyphs to a truetype file or EPS vector artwork. You can also take any work and export it to another app and then load them via the file open command or perhaps via one of the tools such as gradient tool in Affinity Photo and use them as a powerful bitmap tile. Millions of artworks can be created from these sets.
You can use them as a fill, as a path but you can also use them as a layer and and as a layer, you can also add styles / layer effects. You can also use the fill option with styles as well by adding them to a layer and then adding styles to that. You can either use them with the one click effects via the styles panel or you can go to the layer menu and layer style / layer effects. You can then add a drop shadow, add a bevel, a contour to the vector, a glow, as well as gradients.
With the latest CC release, you can now add more than one shadow to the layer effect, as well as more than one stroke, more than one glow and gradient (but not more than one pattern unless you convert the item into a smart object). The added layer effect can be modified dramatically by subtle changes to the blending modes between each of the effects in the layer effects dialog.
You can also make dramatic differences to the effect by just changing the layer scaling via the scaling option in the layer menu. You can add the layer effects to the CC library by clicking the FX button found at the bottom of the library. To use that, just click the icon in the CC library. OK, not much different from the panel itself for the presets but the libraries are always live and active and can be quickly searched for that unique effect to add to your curved vector design.
If you want to add the actual design, PS and CC libraries are slightly odd in that it rasterizes the layer so the best way to add that curved artwork is to open Illustrator and save the vector artwork via that and then use it in PS (weird). Even odder is that the CC library stores the rasterized item but editing it allows you to access the underlying vector which can be re-sized and transformed and then saved resulting in a much cleaner (if you using the artwork in a much bigger document than the original source document) layer.
You can use the presets in PS and PS Elements etc but if you want to use them in other applications then you will have to export them as the CSH format support is fairly limited (to about two or three apps at most and an Illustrator plugin). You can export them using a number of means such as by the pasteboard, via CC libraries as well as vector SVG format etc Exporting Custom Shapes to Raster / Vector Applications Tutorial
The first thing to do is the create a circle shape using the layer option and then duplicate the artwork. You can then re-color the second design perhaps to white as it makes it easier to see the difference. Move the top most layer around until you get the lunar design you want and then select both of the layers via the layer panel and then go to the layer menu and combine / subtract. You can then merge them via the merge component command and then define the artwork as a new CSH vector preset Tutorial on how to create a crescent (youtube)
