Flower shapes for Photoshop and elements CC CS5 CS4 CS6 2015 inc. floral / garden cookie cutters
They are in CSH format. Easy to load (either via the CSH presets or via the presets palette). Once loaded the Photoshop flower shapes can be used with the custom shapes tool as well as the cookie cutter tool (if using PS Elements) and the powerful blur filter found in the filter menu. They can be used as layers (and have layer effects applied) and they can also be used as selections / paths as well as just basic fills. Set the color of the layer as well as the stroke and other stroke settings such as dash etc via the new stroke options.
The flower Photoshop shapes can be transformed, blended, distorted, effects applied and more. They can also be used as a source for new even more amazing unique decorative graphics via the transform and pathfinder combinations. They can also be exported for use in other applications either as raster format or as a vector graphic in Adobe AI etc. They can be used as masks and displacement maps and distortions and more.
Commercial use, royalty free, no time limits. You can use them to create all kinds of work such as logos, adverts, textiles, videos etc

Flower Photoshop shapes with styles
If you apply them as a layer, you can use them with styles in Adobe PS. You can use them with styles via the palette and Adobe offers a large range such as transparencies, bevelled items, gels, textures and more - all instant one click. If you wish to only add a shadow or bevel to the artwork then you can do that via the layer menu layer styles panel / palette. You can also add a stroke, glow, gradient, pattern etc. You can set any of the settings to the default as well. You can also convert the items into a smart object (combined with the effects) and add a whole new batch of effects and so you can create two or more shadows as well as two or more glows as well as combining two or more patterns to create some truly weird and wonderful and abstract (and hopefully, useful) styles by using the smart object. You can repeat this a number of times via the layer menu. To edit the layer styles though does become a slightly more complicated edit of repeat PSB files. You can find a number of videos on the subject via our graphicxtras channel on Youtube. You can also add adjustment layers into the mix and also use the combinations of styles / smart objects to great effect in the video timeline (again, there are a number of videos on this subject via the graphicxtras channel)
How to move the Flower Photoshop shapes into Illustrator
You can use them directly in Illustrator as well if you have the art blue plugin set from Amazon Canvas. You can check that out via their site - the plugin set also has a number of other wonderful features that can modify the paths in all kinds of ways. If you don't have the plugin set then to use them in Illustrator, the easiest way will be just to select the item as a shape layer and then copy the item into Illustrator via the pasteboard / clipboard. Another option is to copy the artwork into the CC library and then use the same library feature in Illustrator. Once you have the path in AI, you can then manipulate the artwork in all kinds of ways using the tools in AI as well as third party plugins such as VectorScribe / ColliderScribe etc from Astute Graphics
Flower custom shapes and Photoshop smart objects
With CC 2015, you can now turn all the vector artworks into smart objects and combine with smart filters (such as blurs, distortions, glass, poster edges etc) as well as smart adjustments via the image menu. The adjustments and filters are then associated with that artwork only and not any of the background items. To start, select the item as a layer and then go to the layer menu smart object and convert and then go to the smart filters menu and add any effects; you can then also go to the image menu and add hue / saturation, curves, photo filter etc. You can remove the smart adjustments as well as smart filters as well as modify any of the properties of the adjustments etc. This can all be done via the layer palette You can make the changes to one vector and this will not be reflected in any other. You can also save this layer as well as the smart filters and smart adjustments to the linked libraries feature in CC 2015. Any changes you make to the linked library item will be reflected throughout your copy of CC
Photoshop flower shapes format
Many of the earlier sets were created in PS 6 format and can be used from version 6 7 CS1 CS2 etc. The latest updates will now only be CC format (2014 2015 2016 etc) and therefore probably not be accessible to anyone using CS1 etc. The format for the CSH hasn't changed that much over the years and personally, not even sure why it has changed at all as there has been no real new features added to them since day 1. Still, please be aware of this.
Installation / load of Photoshop flower shapes (CSH format)
They are stored in CSH and can be loaded via the PS presets palette load / replace command and used with the CS tool and cookie cutter and shape blur filter (be really nice if that was added to many other filters of Adobe PS). You can also, in many cases, open the CSH file in Adobe PS via the open command but this is not generally the case on the mac. You can right click the CSH file and select the open command to load them as well as just double click the CSH file to load them. You can also load them via the edit menu preset manager in the most recent versions of Adobe PS. You can load the set over and over but that will just keep adding the same vectors to the presets palette which will eventually mean you hit the limit on the maximum number of presets in the palette. Also, adding more and more sets will also have a hit on the resources available to the app. You can also just hold the alt key down and delete individual items added
Photoshop flower shapes and Creative Cloud updates
With the October 2014 update of the Creative cloud subscription, you can now take the artworks from the palette (either as a layer or pixel / fill) and place them in the new CC libraries. You can also drag any of the artworks with attached styles as well as adjustment layers as well as the same as smart objects and place them also in the creative libraries. You can create multiple libraries perhaps for a particular project, perhaps work in progress, for a certain color, perhaps items with shadows and so on. All can be saved for future work. You can also quickly take the resources and place them for use in Illustrator (hopefully at some point the libraries feature will be extended to the other applications of Creative Cloud). You can also use the paths (path option via the top bar options) in the October 2014 release with the powerful new flame tool. You can then create a vast range of blazing imagery using any of the CSH presets. You must use them in the path mode. The flame feature works best with the results being added to a layer as any creation can be moved and duplicated and deleted and you can also add styles and other effects to the flames. With the CC 2015, you can now add even more style effects to the items such as multiple shadows and also multiple glows and gradients as well as more strokes. You can also use them as linked assets now via the CC libraries.
