Install of CSH files
The Photoshop custom hexagon shapes are in standard CSH format and these are installed into the presets custom shapes folder, the CSH files can then be accessed quickly via the right side menu of the custom shape tool. Once selected, they can be used throughout the document as shape layers, paths and fills. They can be set to any color in PS and can be used as a single element or as part of the design or used multiple times. The file also should be accessible via the file open command on the PC, though that is not the case on the mac.
PDF vector format design
The PDF files are loaded via the file open command of PSP or Illustrator etc, they can also be loaded into the applications in some cases via the file import or file place command. The PDF files can also be converted to other formats such as PNG and TIFF. The CSH custom shapes are native resources, PDF files can be used in many different applications and not just PS . The CSH format can be converted into PDF designs but the PDF designs cannot be easily converted into shapes - though some of the designs are easier than others (the PDF graphics are colorful designs and some are more complex with lens flares etc which cannot be converted into CSH custom shapes)
A quick video showing how to create basic designs in PS - use the polygon tool. Of course, the vectors on this page for PS are far more complex than just the basic hex. The video also shows the creation of designs followed by the duplication and scaling to create a ring shape. The ring is created by using the subtract shape set operation. This is then duplicated and used to create a honeycomb shape design in CC Create shapes in CC
There are also many additional videos about the shapes for PS etc via the graphicxtras channel on youtube. If you have any questions about the vector presets, please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org and I will try and create a video or two.
Use the perspective warp on a shadow style and blur the design via the blur gallery tilt in CC 2014
How can I use them ?
You can use to create items for commercial as well as personal use, you can also use the presets to create items that can be used in turn to create items for sale CU4CU. You can also use them to create logos, brush strokes, fashions, adverts, packaging, videos, documents, items for sale on zazzle, catalogs, skateboards, tiles and much more. If you have any questions about them, please contact us on email@example.com
The designs can be used as standard vector designs in Elements but they can also be used as cookie cutters as well. Select the cookie cutter tool and then you will see the various options on the top options bar such as the design (which can be any of the vector CSH designs) as well as feathering and also crop (which will crop the entire document to the size of the vector). If the crop option is not set to on then the design is just placed in the original location (feathered or not) with the full document and all the image outside of the cookie cutter removed. While applying the cookie cutter in PSE, you can constrain the design (width and height) as well as rotate and scale and shear transformations. Once you have the cookie cutter, you can always re-apply another cookie cutter to chop even more away from the design. You can use the end result as a wonderful source for strokes as well as patterns and displacement maps and textures. You can also apply effects to the cookie cutter. If you want to have the original image as well as cookie cutter then before using the tool, duplicate the layer as many times as you wish and use the cookie cutter design on those (in different locations if you wish) and you can then also combine those multiple cut layers using blending modes such as difference to create some truly stunning designs.
Application of the designs
They can be used in countless ways. They can be filled with a single color or filled with multiple colors. Theye can also have effects applied / layer styles such as shadows and bevels. Turn the designs into smart objects for use with smart filters. Use the designs with layer effects and styles. Export the designs to other applications such as PSP, Indesign, Pages etc
If you have lots and lots of designs / presets to work through then a browser might be of use. Sadly, Adobe Bridge does not have any feature to look through ABR and CSH and PAT files. The Tumasoft presetviewerbreeze tool is a really useful tool and you can find more via their site. You can use the tool to generate thumbnails of all the designs and much more.
