Giraffe brushes for Adobe ® Photoshop etc
The giraffe brushes for Photoshop etc can be used as 'brushes' but they can also be used just as a layer or single image. You can apply them as brush strokes but you can also just place the PNG file and apply transformations as well as color effects and layer effects to the giraffes
The giraffe brushes can be used to create custom shapes. Either use the actual shape file (file open command) or apply a brush stroke to a layer and use the select menu load selection (transparency) command and follow this with turning the design into a work path (via path palette) - from this go to the edit menu and use the define custom shape command. Once the shape has been turned into a shape, you can use the giraffe as a vector design for any size of work. You can apply the shape multiple times as well as apply different color effects such as gradients or pattern fills to the giraffe brushes design (as below)

On buying the giraffe brushes for Photoshop / elements etc you receive the link to the zip file and the zip file includes the giraffe brushes in ABR and / or PNG format along with brushes notes and gallery of all the giraffe brush strokes as well as a serial number for any update of the giraffe brushes. You should be able to expand the giraffe brushes zip file without any more software but if you do need some software to expand the file, stuffit expander is a good application to use which can be found on the Smith Micro website
The giraffe brushes can be used in any color via the Photoshop / psp toolbox color settings (foreground color)
How to load giraffe brushes (ABR)
The giraffe brushes in ABR format can be loaded into Photoshop by double clicking the ABR file. The designs are all then loaded into the brushes palette in Photoshop. You can also right click the ABR giraffe brushes file and then select the open command. The giraffe brushes can also be placed into the brushes presets folder of Photoshop and elements and then the designs can be loaded quickly via the right side menu of the brushes palette by name. You can also use the right side menu load / replace command to load and replace the giraffe brushes into Photoshop. You can also use the preset manager found in the edit menu to do the same. Once loaded into Adobe Photoshop and Photoshop elements, the giraffe brushes can be selected via the brushes palette and used with most of the brush tools such as clone tool, art history tool, blur tool, history tool, dodge tool and others
You can use the giraffe brushes on layers and you can then apply glows or shadows the brushes - one is clearly very happy with himself
Giraffe brushes & Photoshop effects / filters
You can apply the giraffe brushes in Adobe ® Photoshop as is but you can also apply the design and then combine with effects / filters via the filters menu. I always prefer to apply the giraffe brush stroke as a Photoshop layer and then use the layer as a smart object layer and then apply smart filters as the smart filters can be modified at any point in the creative process. All kinds of Adobe Photoshop filter can be applied to the giraffe brushes to create millions of stunning designs. Effects such as oil paint/ paint daubs / camera raw filter are perfect to modify the existing giraffe designs
The giraffe brushes can be used in any color, any size (to the limit and a little beyond of the actual brush size) and they can also be modified by endless Photoshop / psp filter effects / plugins
Use the giraffe brushes as a source for other resources
The giraffe brushes PNG files as well as the giraffe brushes ABR can be used as other resources in Adobe Photoshop, PSP etc. You can open the PNG giraffe brushes file and then use the define pattern command to save the giraffe as a pattern tile (seamless or otherwise). You can also convert the giraffe brushes PNG file into a PSD (native Photoshop format) and the giraffe brush can then be used as a displacement map. You can also apply effects, color etc to the design and change the giraffe design to create even more giraffe resources. The design can also be used as a source for shapes and much more. They are definitely not limited to just giraffe brushes.
The giraffe brushes can be used as a wonderful source for amazing fills in Photoshop such as using the scripted patterns and random fill
Giraffe brushes and Photoshop styles
You can change any of the brushes in Photoshop, giraffe brushes or any other, simply by applying a Adobe ® Photoshop style to the brush stroke. The giraffe brushes can be applied as a layer and that layer can have styles applied to change a design into a metallic giraffe / plastic giraffe / concrete giraffe and much more. You can apply the Photoshop styles to one or more giraffe brushes in Adobe Photoshop. The style applied giraffe brush can also be saved as a new (metallic or otherwise) giraffe brush for future use in your projects
Colorful styles can be applied to the giraffe brushes in Photoshop (as well as other applications)
Use the giraffe brushes as 3D graphics
You can use the giraffe brushes via the Adobe Photoshop (expanded version or with the latest creative cloud) 3D tools (if you have creative cloud). Apply the giraffe themed brush to a layer or open the giraffe brushes via the file place command. Select the new 3D extrusion from selected layer or new mesh from layer commands to create a 3D graphic. The 3D giraffe brush can be re-modeled using a number of 3D features included in the application. You can also save the '3D' model via the 3D menu export layer command as well as print to a 3D printer (if you have one). You can export to the following 3D formats : Collada DAE, Adobe Flash 3D FL3 format, Google Earth, STL and Wavefront OBJ (which is more useful for me as I can use it in Poser, one of the best applications ever). Note that the 3D menu names have changed a few times over recent versions, I guess it will settle down at some point
There are many different giraffe brushes included in the giraffe set for Photoshop etc
Giraffe brushes and Photoshop image modes
The giraffe brushes can be used in basic Photoshop RGB mode, they can also be used in CMYK mode as well as the gray color mode and LAB mode and others, you can also use the giraffe brushes in 8bit / 16bit / 32bit modes for those image modes, the giraffe brushes can then be used to create truly amazing color effects. The giraffe Photoshop brushes can also be used in different separate channels such as red channel and green blue (as well as cyan, magenta etc) channel etc
You can use the giraffe brushes with many different filters such as camera raw filter in many different image modes
Giraffe brushes and type in Photoshop / psp
You can apply the giraffe brushes in Photoshop / psp to type such as warping and distorting or blurring type and much more. You can also fill the giraffe brushes with text by using selections and paste into that selection. You can move the pasted text to different positions as required as well as scale the layer etc.
Text can be used to fill the giraffe brushes for Photoshop via the paste into command
Giraffe brushes - how did you create them ?
The giraffe brushes for Photoshop / psp etc were created using Poser as 2D renders of 3D models. The designs were exported as PNG format files and opened in Illustrator and Photoshop. In Illustrator, the giraffe brushes were manipulated using various plugins and image trace features and the results copied into Photoshop to be saved as PNG files. Poser is an application from Smith Micro - one of the best graphic tools around
Many different designs are included in the giraffe brushes set such as darker / highlights etc designs
Giraffe brushes and adjustment layers in Photoshop
Changing the color of a brush stroke etc can be done via effects and image adjustments (as well as via the foreground color in the Photoshop toolbox) but a quick and easy way to change the color of the giraffe brushes without any 'lasting' effect applied to the brushes is to use the adjustment layers feature of Photoshop. The adjustment layers can be removed in seconds. The effects of an adjustment layer can be modified in seconds. The underlying giraffe brush remains untouched until you flatten the image. Adjustment layers are also even more useful with patterns (and the giraffe brushes make also useful pattern designs). The adjustment layers are added to the giraffe brush via the layer menu and new adjustment layer - you can ase them also in the layers palette. There are many adjustment layers such as color lookup, threshold, hue etc (though I wish HDR toning was available as an adjustment layer as well as camera raw filter)
Gradient maps are a useful adjustment layer for adding instant color to a brush stroke (beyond the color added via the foreground and background color)
