PC & MAC

Versions of PS ?
Yes, the Photoshop flame shapes will work with most versions of PS probably currently running. If you are using PS 4 then they won't work but the format has been accessible since version 6 and that was released, according to wikipedia, since 2000. They will also work in 6, 7, 8 (CS), 9 (CS2) etc all the way up to the latest version of the application, 14.2 (as of January 2014). They also will work with PS Eelements 1 upwards. There is also no issue with either PC or MAC, they work fine on either. They were created in the PS6 format (which still works fine on my Windows 8.1)
How to load into the application
They can be loaded by double clicking the CSH presets. Another approach to loading the CSH presets via the open command of PS and PSE (this works on some versions). Another option to load the CSH is to go to the right side menu of the presets palette (availble when you select the vector tool) and use the load or replace command. You should also be able to access the CSH presets via the edit menu preset manager though this is not the case with all versions.
You can get a little overwhelmed with the CSH presets available, and if that is the case, a browser would be great. Sadly PS is lacking a browser for its own resources and so you can only see one set at a time (a workaround being that you can load 1000s of them into a single palette). Another solution being the powerful Tumasoft presetviewer Breeze tool which can scan through many different preset types such as CSH and ABR and PAT etc and generate thumbnails etc of the work. A very useful tool and there is a free trial available on their site
How to use in other applications
They cannot be used directly in other applications so if you have PS or PS elements then you can create them as a layer and then export the vector graphic via the PDF as well as via the export menu ai path option. You can also just export the rasters in PS via the save for web or save command and save as a PNG or TIFF images.
You can find out more information via our video channel on youtube 'graphicxtras'. If you have any questions about how to use the the presets say with patterns etc, please let us know and I will try and create a video on the subject. Please contact us about the videos via email@example.com
What can I do with them ?
They can be used in commercial as well as personal work, you can use them to create items that can be used in turn to create items for sale (CU4CU). They can be used to create logos, books, illustrations, patterns, documents, adverts, fashions, ceramics, posters, mugs and much more. If you have any more questions about them, please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org
Use with the shape blur tool ?
One of the most powerful blur tools (for me) is the shape blur. The tool can be found via the blur menu in the filters menu. This is the only filter that uses the CSH which is a pity as I think many of the plugin tools in PS would benefit by using a source preset to modify the effect (After Effects seems to go out of its way to allow most of its effects to be modified by all kinds of sources but PS seems to be still stuck with filters with often only two or three controls). The blur tool can also be further modified by the fade option as well as blending modes and you can use the tool on channels and also as smart filters so all the effects can be modified at any point (as well as duplicated multiple times)
Use with Styles
Yes, add as a layer and then apply a style such as metallic or gradient effects etc to create millions of wonderful images. You can then further modify the work via the layer menu and layer effects.
What is included in the set ?
The set includes the CSH along with documentation and a (much like the one in the listing above) and a serial number for any future updates of the set
Do they work with Creative cloud ?
Yes, they do. They work fine with the latest version and with the new features for selecting the fill and stroke etc as well as different stroke options and also better selections of multiple presets
