Creative cloud 2015 - they all work in that ???
Yes, the artworks included in the set all work with the latest and greatest version of the subscription release. They also work in earlier versions as well. They also work in the standalone versions. They are also cross platform and you can use them without any change on PC and MAC and at the same time if you wish.
How to install the CSH ???
They are all in CSH and can be loaded via the preset palette in Adobe PS and this is the case for all versions of PS as well as PS Elements. Note that the CSH files were introduced with version 6 and so do not work with earlier versions of the application. They can also be loaded via the open command in the PC version but this does not work with the mac version. In some versions of PS you can also load them via the edit menu preset manager as the command set is fairly similar to the preset palette though not identical. You can also load them via the right side menu of the presets palette and this gives you the option to load as well as replace. The load command is probably the best option as the items are appended to the current set. If you are using PSE then it is best that you add the CSH file to the presets folder of PSE as you can then access it via the right side menu, there is no load and replace option available. You can also right click the CSH vector set and select an application to open them with (this is probably set to your current version of PS or PSE but you can never be certain) or just double click them and use the default (again, this should be the current version of the application but this is not always the case as sometimes the file associations can get confused). There are a few other applications that support the CSH format and that is the Amazon Canvas plugin for Illustrator 'Art Blue' and that can be used to import the vectors into Illustrator in seconds though the use of the tool does require the most up to date format CSH. Another application that can access them is the powerful preset browser tool from Tumasoft called Preset Browser Breeze and that is very useful for accessing all the vector format files as PNG thumbnails. I would love to see the PS application support a better display of the resources but the thumbnails are fairly small. As far as I am aware, there are no other applications that support the CSH format.
How can I use them - legal requirements ?
You can use them for Adobe PS and PS Elements to create items for commercial as well as personal use, you can also use them to create items that can be used in turn to create items for sale CU4CU. You can also use them to create logos, ceramics, brush strokes, scrapbooking, web pages, adverts, packaging, videos, documents, items for sale on zazzle, catalogs, skateboards, tiles and much more. If you have any questions, please contact us via our contact page where you can send us a tweet or perhaps leave us a message on our Youtube board. All the spiders etc on this page were created by Andrew Buckle (designer on this site) and you can use them to create artworks without any credit required nor are there any time constraints. You can also use the items worldwide. You should note that if you use them to create logos then it is best that you only use part of the object or perhaps use a lot of other resources and artwork with the design as the artwork supplied is non exclusive and it is quite likely that someone else may use a similar artwork for their logo.
How to transform them ??
You can use them as is but you can add them to PS as a vector layer and as a layer they can be rotated and scaled using the standard tools in PS. You can also use various tools such as perspective warp and puppet warp as well as the standard warping transformation tool. You can take the path and flip the object, you can rotate it 45 degrees or 90 degrees or 315 degrees etc. You can create them very small and then using the layer handles, turn them into a super large path that is bigger than the document so the path is only partially seen.
How did you create them ?
They were all created in Poser (from SmithMicro). The renders were all then copied into Illustrator and image traced to create vector graphics. The butterflies and flies and spiders etc were then copied from Illustrator into PS and they were then saved as a CSH presets via the save command found in the edit menu and the palette was then saved as a CSH. The latest version of Poser now includes even more features for producing amazing artworks of spiders and flies and cockroaches etc and is worth checking out via the Smith Micro site.
