How to install them ???
The ABR can be opened in PS & Elements by double clicking the ABR file, you can also select the open with command to load the items. You can also load the ABR presets via the open command in some versions. You can also open the presets via the edit menu preset manager. If you place the ABR into the presets folder, the file then can be selected by name via the palette right side menu. You can also use the right side menu to load and replace (and browse) for the ABR set Graphicxtras Tutorial : on the loading of the strokes
How to open them in PS ???
Many of the sets include the items in PNG as well as ABR (or perhaps just the PNG). The fire PNGs are far more flexible as strokes than the ABRs (only for PS). The PNG images can be opened via the open command and via the place command (which means the dab becomes a layer or smart object). The PNG can then be defined as a stroke via the edit menu define command. Once defined, the image can be applied via all the standard tools (as well as PaintShop Pro etc). You can also use the PNGs as a great source for layers, displacement maps (convert the PNG to PSD) as well as patterns etc.
How to load them into PSP ???
Open the PNG document (any number) and then select the paint tool or one of the other tools. View menu command palette and tool options. Display the PSP tools palette showing all the default strokes and go to the bottom right (this depends on the version of PSP as in some versions, it was on the top right) and click the create from selection option - don't select the other button. To better define the stroke, use a selection to remove any white area you do not want. Give a name as well as steps and also give copyright etc details. If you select save variance then various settings are saved along with the stroke.
How to use them with a preset browser ???
If you have zillions of ABRs and have loads and loads of great artworks to use and searching for a particular artwork may be pretty tricky - this is where a preset browser comes in handy. There is a great application called Tumasoft presetviewerbreeze available. It handles ABRs, fonts, CSH presets, PAT, GRD files and more. Use the tool to create galleries of strokes / presets in seconds. You can find a free trial version on the web via most search engines.
How to create new and unique artwork for your projects ?
They are not cast in stone, they are also great as source material so you can create a new stroke simply by opening the existing PNG or applying dabs from the existing ABR and then selecting that and using the define command. You can also use visual effects such as blurs or oil paint etc to create more depth to the artwork and then save that. If you want to create your own versions of the artwork then personally the best application has to be Illustrator (many of the artworks in this set were created in Illustrator) as you can manipulate the curves of the fire in numerous ways and combine many different layers to create a true furnace of artworks. Of course, vector format items are even better at creating new and wonderful dabs and artworks for your project and you can find fire themed custom shapes for PS as well as fiery font truetype sets with all kinds of wonderful artwork that can be used to any size and in most applications.
Video tutorials - learn more about the presets ???
You can find a lot of information on the presets etc via our graphicxtras video channel on youtube.com. All the videos are by Andrew Buckle. If you have any questions please let us know (such as how to install them in a particular application or how to distort them or blend them into other elements, how to use them as smart objects, use with smart filters, use them with layer comps, use them across channels, use them in video timelines and many more.

How to use them with adjustments in PS ???
The strokes can be applied but they can be modified in a huge number of ways by using the image menu and adjustments such as levels, curves, hue / saturation, photo filter, HDR toning etc. You can also use them with adjustment layers and as layers you can always remove and modify the settings - any adjustments though are just added to the current layer and are destructive. You can also modify the color by using the On software plugins such as their powerful perfect photo suite tools. You can also download a set of free tools via their perfect effects 9 presets and using those tools you can change the colors in 1000s of stunning ways. You can also find a whole range of wonderful color tweaking tools on this site which work amazingly well with the fire / tattoo artworks on this page
How to use them as layers in PS ????
You can open the files as a layer via the place command or via the open command and then just select and copy and paste. The place command (embedded or linked in the latest version of PS) means the files all have transparency which can be modified and added to, also layer styles and effects can be added. The layers can also be re-position as required to create endless presets (you can also set up various layer comps to change the position and visibility. You can also use them as layers in PS with the video timeline and you can use the same settings as the layer comps to modify the position and shadow and overlay etc over time and create stunning videos rendered in MP4 etc format
How to use them as a great source for patterns ???
The PNG images can be quickly added to the patterns folder of PSP and then they will be accessible via the materials palette in PaintShop Pro. You can also add the PNG images to other folders such as textures etc. You can find the location for these folders via the preferences section 'file locations' in PaintShop Pro. If you are using other apps such as the superb Affinity Photo then the items can be loaded via the file open command as well as place command and you can also load them via the gradient tool (bitmap option) to use them as tiles as well as the new fill layer to use them as tiles. You can also load them via the nozzle / paint palette where you can add them as one or more nozzles to be added to any image. You can also use them via the AP displace filter as well as via the apply image command (and probably a few other sections). There are also many other apps that can use them as strokes as well as tiles and one of my favourites has to be the superb Manga Studio (clip studio paint). Of course, you can even check out some more amazing tiles of burning and raging fire on this site which may prove useful as a set of examples of some possible texture / tile ideas.
How can I use them ?
Use to create commercial as well as personal work, you can use them to create items that can in turn be used to create new items for sale CU4CU. You can use them to create logos, books, illustrations, documentation, adverts, scrap booking items, hats, videos, packaging, items for sale on zazzle etc. All the items were created by Andrew Buckle / graphicxtras.com and they can be used without any time restraints, world wide use, no credit is required, and all are royalty free
How to use them with the new path / blur / flame etc features in PS ??
The strokes can be used with most effects in PS and PSP but they can be used to great effect with the powerful blur gallery and in particular the path blur. The path blur means you can add a path and blur along a particular line of the flickery artwork. You can apply multiple blurs with the gallery itself or perhaps duplicate the fire artwork on layers and then apply different blurs in different directions to each layer to create a truly wonderful burning image. You can also use the layers to create an artwork spread over multiple frames of animations and this can be rendered to video. And as the path blur can be controlled in different directions each of the layers can be flickers in different directions. You can also extend this further by adding the stroke and then converting them via the layer menu to a smart object and then adding smart filters which can be changed at any point
What do I get with the set ??
On buying any of the sets on this page, you receive the items with the ABR format (load them via the PS palette) as well as the PNG format (for use with many other apps and PS) and gallery and serial and documentation and PS actions. The set is sent via a zip file and the zip is a compressed format and needs to be expanded and this should be fine in most modern OS so you don't need any additional software. If you do, then the stuffit expander software (free) should do but there are many other free ones available
