Coloring Photoshop dog shapes

The Photoshop custom shapes, as well as the brushes, can all be re-colored. The palette (in Adobe PS and most applications) often shows the dogs (or any other) in a single color best for the application - such as black but most graphic applications allow for the art to be applied in different colors such as red, green, black. In Photoshop


Set the shapes color via the toolbox though you can also apply multiple colors to the path by applying the graphic as a layer or a path / selection. You can then fill the selection or the layer effect with a vast range of different colors such as metallic, quadrants and more. The examples above show the shape (or brush) applied with a solid fill (or fill pixels in the case of Photoshop) but you can also use the selection or transparency of the graphic to fill with super colorful displays or effects as below.

Photoshop dog shapes and libraries

If you are using the creative cloud, the latest version includes a powerful new library feature - dynamic libraries. You can drag anything (actually not strictly true as it seems I can't save 3D models to the palette) such as type as well as brushes and gradients etc as well as the shapes. You can drag them with styles, you can drag them into the palette with smart filters attached as well as adjustment layers and more. Once they are there, and you can place them in different libraries, you can then recall them at any point and place them back into the image (as a new layer). You can also then use the resources on other machines as well as on different OS as well as in Illustrator (and I assume at some point they will be accessible in other parts of the Creative Cloud). It is a very useful tool and probably will become very central to many peoples' workflow. It was introduced with Creative Cloud CC 2014.2

Export to other applications

You don't have to keep the dog shapes only for Photoshop, of course not, you can use them in other applications such as PaintShop Pro, GIMP 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 for the file to be opened in some vector applications.


You can also just apply them as a pixel / raster image and then save as a PNG 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. You can also use the shapes to create brush strokes and tiles in Adobe PS and others and export any of those. You can also use the shapes more than once to perhaps build a far more complex imagery and then export that to another application. You can save the images as a PSB file by using the smart object menu "convert to linked" command. Or use visual effects and then export.
