What can I do with the set ?
The Photoshop eye custom shapes can be used in commercial work as well as personal work, you can use the presets to create items that can be used in turn to create new preset that can be sold and so on (CU4CU). They can be used to create logos, book covers and interiors, illustrations, advertising, glasses, packaging, posters, caps, textiles, ceramics, skateboards, leaflets, web sites, templates, videos and much more. You can use them to create millions of stunning unique graphics. If you have any questions about the presets, please contact us about them and I will try and answer your questions as quickly as possible. We can be reached on firstname.lastname@example.org
Palette options for the tool
The Photoshop eye shapes are displayed via the palette. The palette can hold a large range of the artworks (though not every CSH presets created on graphicxtras - probably be too much for any palette) and are displayed as a thumbnail. To use an artwork, simply select and then apply. The presets palette can also be added to via the standard file and open command as well in later versions of PS and Elements (this might vary from version to version and OS to OS)
1) Select the CSH tool
2) Go to the top bar / options
3) Select the presets dropdown
4) Select the design from the palette
5) Apply the artwork as required
There are additional items associated with the CSH tool such as apply the design as constrained or unconstrained or a defined size or apply from the center
1) Select CSH tool
2) Select defined size (size as required)
3) Go to the document
4) Click and repeat click to apply the fill design over the entire document (great for a nozzle like effect).
Fixed size and Vector graphics
If you use the fixed size, you can use the presets more like a brush stroke or nozzle and just click the document repeatedly to apply a quick preset using the current color - fill an image with 1000s of artworks in seconds
The only thing that is slightly problematic is that the vector is generated to the side of the design - you can fix this by setting the 'from center' option and then the nozzle is a whole lot easier to control. For many of the controls, the from center option makes the application harder but the from center works well with the fixed size option. Use to create millions of abstract designs.
You can find more about the eye custom shapes via the graphicxtras channel on Youtube. How to install them, how to use them, how to distort and warp and much more. If you have any questions, please e-mail us.
Use as layers, paths and fills
You can set the designs to be three formats and they all have their uses. You can set them via the top bar of PS. You can apply the layers and paths as vectors and the others are raster. You can still apply the fill design to a layer but you have to create that layer first. The path is probably the least useful in its default state but you can always copy the designs to Illustrator or use it with text or apply brush strokes and convert into selections and use with effects so even the path option for the designs can be useful in PS.
Use as a smart object
The eye custom shapes can be used as a powerful tool combined with the smart objects feature in the latest versions of PS. You can bring together the designs with smart filter and adjustment layers and layer effects and the combination is live so all the settings can be changed at any moment which makes it all so awesome and easy to use. The smart object use changes with each and every version of PS so who knows what wonderful additions they will add to the feature in the 2015 and 2016 Adobe CC releases. So how to get started with them, simply select the design and then go to the layers menu and convert to smart object and then add the smart filters to the design and bundle together with adjustment layers into new smart objects. You can use it perhaps to make the design spark or appear to be blinking or perhaps add in effects like a lens flare or blurry etc. You can also apply shadows and other effects via the layer menu. You can combine multiple smart objects over and over to create ever more complex graphics though with the recent versions of the application you are still limited to the layer palette and multiple clickings of PSB files (which I hope will be improved in subsequent versions of PS). You can now save the design via the layer menu convert to linked command and save the design as a PSB file which can be imported in via the place command.
