Opening CSH Octopus shapes in Photoshop

The CSH custom shapes files are for use in Photoshop and PS Elements, there are no other applications that can load them. The CSH format was introduced with Photoshop 6 and the format has changed subtly over the years. All the CSH shape files on this site have been created with that early version in mind and all the octopus etc shapes work from Photoshop 6 upwards all the way up to the current creative cloud. To load the CSH shapes file, the best route is probably adding the octopus custom shapes set to the presets folder ' custom shapes' - all the versions of Photoshop and PS Elements have worked with that approach. You can on the PC also use the file open command to load the CSH octopus shapes but you can't do this on the mac. PS Elements 12 has no option to load / replace the shapes from a folder, so adding the CSH file to the presets folder is probably the best way to insure that the octopus shapes are accessible in all versions and all OS.

Accessing PDF octopus shapes in Photoshop

You can load the octopus artworks via the file open command in Photoshop and elements; you can also access the PDF designs via the file place command. Using the Photoshop open command, you will be asked the size / resolution for the PDF shape. If you use the place command, the octopus shape is placed just as a standard layer and can be re-sized as required. It will be set at the resolution of the document. The Photoshop octopus set also has the shapes in other formats. In many of the sets of PDFs on graphicxtras, the PDF files all contain just a single vector shape but the octopus set includes multiple shapes and you will be requested to select a design (pity that you can't select multiple octopus designs but that is the nature of the open command from Adobe).

As you can see from the dialog above, multiple items are visible but only one of the octopus artworks can be selected. You can set the size, bit depth, color mode.


The Photoshop place command dialog is similar but without all the fields on the right for the size. Once opened, you can then use the Photoshop octopus shape as a layer then you can re-size the vector octopus as well.

You can, if you have Photoshop CS5 CS6 CC, use the Photoshop "open as smart object command" found in the file menu and you can then use the octopus shape as a smart object (as the layer) and re-size at any point in the creative artwork. You can see a little smart object icon in the layers palette - double click the icon to edit
