How to open the diamond Photoshop shapes ??
They are in CSH, double click the CSH presets and the file is loaded into the palette. That is probably the quickest way to load the presets into the application. Another approach is to use the load / replace commands found on the palette and you can then load the palette or replace the existing. If you are using PS elements, you will need to load the presets by adding the file to the preset folder for Elements. You can also double click the CSH presets to load as well as right click the file and select the open option
Diamond Photoshop shapes - Layer, path, pixels ?
There are three ways to apply the items and that is by selecting the CSH tool and then selecting the required option - layer, pixel or path - each have their uses and can be used to create many different things. The path and the layer options mean the preset remain as vectors and can be used to any size of work at any point, the pixel option means the presets are fixed at the time of creation. You can set the color to any color, gradients or patterns as well effects etc. You can also use the path option as a source for useful selections that can be added and subtracted from and also can be used with effects and gradients etc

Use the diamond Photoshop shapes as a source as pattern tiles
You can use the presets as a great source for pattern tiles. Simply open a document and use them either as a single or multiple graphics (avoiding the seams of the document) and then go to the edit menu and select the define pattern command. You can also export the same as a PNG image and this can be placed in the PSP patterns folder so you can then use the same in PSP as well as PS. You can use them once or multiple times and combine with layers to create all kinds of amazing tiles and used with the offset filter, even more complex sparkling designs can be created. You can also combine them with blending modes and opacity. You can also use them with adjustments to re-color the tiles to create even more works from the same tile. You can also save the tile as a PSD file and then use that as an amazing distortion / glass effects / displacement / texture via the various filters that come with PS. If you are using Affinity Photo then you will have to use the PNG format as the PSD is not supported in those filters
Diamond Photoshop shapes Video tutorials ?
You can find a lot of videos on the tutorials via our video channel on graphictras channel / youtube. You can find out how to create new items, how to use them as tiles, how to use as strokes, how to use them as a path or fill or layer, how to turn them into smart objects and more. If there are any specific questions, please let us know and we can always try and create a video on the subject How to create a vector (Video Youtube)
Setting stroke and fill for the diamond Photoshop shapes
With the most recent releases of the application, you can now rapidly change the fill and stroke of the selected layer as long as you select the CSH tool in the PS toolbox. you can set the color of the vector graphic to a gradient or pattern or solid color. You can also now set the stroke to a whole range of different dash and gap settings via a selection of presets or just edit the gap / dash settings as required. You can also align the stroke inside, outside etc.
Diamond custom Photoshop shapes export to other applications
You don't have to keep the them only for Adobe PS, of course not !! You can use them in other applications such as Affinity Photo, PaintShop Pro, GIMP and many more. If you use them as a layer then you can also copy and paste into Illustrator or use the export command to export the path as an AI document and then you can open them in vector applications. You can also just apply them as a pixel / raster image and then save as a PNG or TIFF image and open in Corel PSP and other applications. As the item is a vector, you can make the file size of your raster export any size - say 3000 x 3000 and then import that. You can also use the decorative graphic to create strokes and tiles in PS etc and export them. You can also use them more than once to perhaps build a far more complex image and then export that to another application. You can also save as a PSB file as well via smart objects (linked convert) if you are using the latest versions of creative cloud. Or use visual effects and then export. The set is an unlimited selection of amazing paths that can be of use in many different tools. You can also add the vectors (as layers) to the CC libraries now and then use them in Illustrator and other parts of the CC library direct from that
Diamond Photoshop shapes - Cookie cutter in PSE
They can be used as CSH vectors in Elements but they can also be used as cookie cutters as well. Select the cookie cutter tool via the PSE toolboc and then you will see the various options on the top PSE options bar such as the vector preset as well as feathering and also crop (which will crop the entire document to the size of the vector graphic). If the crop is not set to on then the result is just placed in the original location with the full document and all the image outside of the cookie cutter removed. While using the powerful cookie cutter in PSE, you can constrain the proportions and apply transformations such as shear and rotate and scale. Once you have the cookie cutter, you can always apply yet another cookie cutter to cut even more away. You can also use the result as a wonderful source for strokes as well as patterns. You can also use visual effects with the cookie cutter tool results. If you want to have the original as well as cookie cutter 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 darken / overlay / exclusion / differences etc
Photoshop diamond shapes - Perspective warp
You can warp them but before you can apply any warps you have to use the layer menu and convert them to a smart object and then use the perspective warp. You can then modify the presets in 1000s of ways using different combinations of layout and warp options. The tool is great for creating a pseudo 3D effect rotation. You can also turn the result of the warp and the initial material as a source for new object and then re-apply the warp again with different settings to create even more amazing sparkled artwork Tutorial on the perspective warp in Photoshop using the vectors (Youtube video)
Diamond shapes as Photoshop smart objects ?
One of the best features in Adobe PS has to be the smart objects. You can quickly convert any into a smart object via the layer menu convert to smart object. The beauty of the smart object is that you can always edit the source material at any point as well as add and remove and change the settings of smart filters applied such as the blur gallery. You can also now save the combined paths and smart filters and adjustment layers and styles into a single linked object via the layer menu (convert to linked) and then bring them back in via the place linked command. You can also store them away for future use via the CC libraries
Diamond Shape blurs in Photoshop ?
A very powerful filter command is the blur found in the blur menu. You can use any of the items included in the set in the filter and that means the tool has a near infinite number of uses and possible creative results. The tool works best with less blur (if you go for the full intensity blur it really just wipes out the image) and perhaps repeat applications either with the same or different. You can select the blur source from the dropdown as with the toolbox and the cookie cutter.
