What can I do with them ?

You can use them to create personal and commercial use graphics, you can use them to create items that can in turn be sold on such as fonts or brushes etc. You can use them to create items to sell, ceramics, mousemats, logos, books, illustrations, adverts, videos, skateboards, mugs, posters, textiles, to sell on Zazzle and Cafepress etc and much more. If you have any questions or concerns about them and how to use them, please contact us, always happy to help (hopefully I can).



How did you create them ?

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 Adobe PS to be saved as 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. Of course, you can always open the set and then save them in PS CC 2014 etc format and there are some differences in formats. You can find a plugin from Amazon Canvas for use in Illustrator and that uses the latest version of CSH and you can use the vector artworks in AI to great effect. If you want to find out more about one approach to creating head vector artworks for your projects, I have created a tutorial on the subject showing the steps betwen Poser / Illustrator and PS.



How to load them in PS ?

The easiest way has to be to place the CSH file into the presets folder of Adobe PS or PS Elements. With PS Elements, that is the only way to access the CSH decorative graphics. In Adobe PS, you can also use the load / replace commands found on the presets palette right side menu to load the CSH set (that is how I load the files but I am certain my approach is not always the best - some people like to load all their CSH files in one single go. So, whatever works). 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



How to turn them into a smart object in PS ???

You can use them as layers as well as pixels and paths but you can also turn them into smart objects. To convert the selected items to a smart object, go to the layer and smart object and convert command. You can select multiple items and convert them into smart object but you can also just use a single item and convert that. You can also convert an item into smart objects combined with adjustment layers as well as layer effects etc. Once the item has become a smart object you will see a little icon appear beside the item (now combined) and this will indicate that it is a smart object. You can then go to the filter menu and apply smart filters. The smart filters can be modified at any point by going to the layers palette and double clicking the item. You can also add a new set of layer styles to that as well as additional adjustment layers etc. You can also convert a smart object into a new smart object so all the expressive female / male head shots can be turned into multiple layers of smart objects. These can all be edited by double clicking the smart icon in the layer palette.. You can edit the items at any point as well as apply additional transformations such as scaling and rotation etc as well as warping and also puppet warp and perspective warp. They are a powerful feature of PS



How to use them with adjustment layers ??

You can now with the Creative cloud CC 2015, convert a vector layer into a smart object and also now add, as well as smart filters such as third party plugins to color the artwork, add smart adjustments to the vectors. You can also modify any of the attached adjustments via the layer palette via the smart filter section. You can add black and white / hue and saturation etc. In previous versions, you could only add them to the entire document or above a layer but now they can be specifically attached to only that selected object and can be modified and removed at any point. You can also move them around adding items above or below others.



How to use them with blending modes ??

You can add them as is but you can add them as a layer or pixel and combine the result with an underlying image or vectors by using opacity as well as blending modes. There are a number of blending modes in PS to combine the vector artwork / smart object / layer. You can quickly tryout all the blending modes or perhaps check out the Adobe website for a very detailed explanation of the settings. Numerous color effects can be generated by any of the artworks on this page added to any image. Personally, I wish the blending mode feature in the layer menu was a little more interactive in that as you scan through the list of difference / darken / multiply / lighten etc the image would change in realtime. If you would like to see an application that does it that way, Affinity Photo is worth checking out (as long as you are on a mac). If you use the items as a layer then you can always change the result at any point as well as change the fill of the layer (solid color, gradient etc)
