How did you create the face shapes ?

They were all initially created in Poser using various 3D poser models and these were then exported to PNGs and at that point re-opened in Adobe AI for image tracing and other effects. The final vector graphics were then copied to Photoshop to be saved as custom shapes CSH presets.


They were all saved in PS 6 format (an old format but it does mean that they are still available for use in all versions of Adobe PS from 6 upwards as well as all versions of PSE.

They can be applied to any color of background, image, as well as being applied in any color.

How to load the face custom shapes in Adobe PS ?

The easiest way has to be to place the CSH custom shapes file into the presets folder of Photoshop or PS Elements.


With PS Elements, that is the only way to access the CSH decorative graphics. In Photoshop, you can also use the load / replace commands found on the shapes palette right side menu to load the face custom shapes (that is how I load the files).


You can in some versions also use the open command to load the CSH presets


You can also double click the CSH file as well as right click the CSH file and select the open command or the open with command

use as a comic strip and story


You can use them in a comic strip - you can use the new guide layout to build a uniform comic page for the paths but I would love to see PS to add far more exciting layouts (I will not be holding my breath) as perhaps add a presets feature of more complex layouts (the supplied presets are good but basic) (#193)

create frames using the vector paths


You can fill a selection with the vector paths in all kinds of close-up or far away etc and then copy and paste as a frame in PS or PSE and add shadow effects via the layer styles (#193)

repeated paths fill entire document


You can use the path to fill an entire document with multiple copies of the artwork (or perhaps multiple duplicated layers which can be arranged as required) (#193)

fill with patterns content checkerboard of women


You can use any of the paths as a great source for tiles (define pattern command) and fill content (layer menu) (#193)
