Use to create other resources
The Photoshop panda bear shapes can be used as is (though you can use them as a layer, selection, path, fill etc) but you can also use them as a great resource for other presets such as strokes and seamless tiles and displacement maps as well as exporting them to other applications such as PSP and use as textures etc in that application. They are also vectors so can be used to create strokes 2000 x 2000 etc or 100 x 100, the choice is yours. You can apply one or multiple or use different posed images to create a complex preset. You can use different colors though the end result will always be grayscale when it comes to a brush. You can also combine the applications with effects such as blurs etc but best to avoid the seams of the image as that will result in an ugly looking line in the stroke. To save, just go to the edit menu in PS and use the define menu brush command. You can also save the same as a seamless tile. To save as a displacement map, save the image as a PSD format file.
Opening the presets in PS and PSE
The key thing is to place the CSH Photoshop panda bear shapes file into the presets folder of PS and Elements. With PS, the CSH presets can be loaded via the palette right side menu load and replace commands. You can also load the presets in PS via the edit menu preset manager and in some cases, you can use the open command to load the CSH presets.
Panda shapes and use with styles
You can use them as a layer then you can apply layer effects such as adding a glow or gradient or shadow. The styles can all be modified via the layer effects dialog. You can also combine the styles and vector as a smart object via the layer menu smart object command and that in turn can have additional styles applied. Use to create metallic, plastic, gels and much more.
Panda custom shapes and use as smart object
The presets can be converted into smart objects via the layer menu. As a smart object, the layer can have smart filters applied (which can be modified at any point as well as deleted). The non destructive smart filters can be duplicated and copied to other objects as well. You can also add to the mix, adjustment layers allowing for all kinds of colorful effects to be added to the vector layer. The smart object can also be saved as a PSB file for future use (with all the smart filters etc attached) via the layer menu convert to linked command (it can be added back via the place linked command)

How were they created ?
They were all created by me (Andrew Buckle) using the powerful 3D tool, Poser. They were all created in many different poses and expressions and then rendered and saved as a PNG image or two. The Poser application also includes a wide selection of sketch renders so there are many different sketch / drawn renders as well. The renders were all then manipulated in PS and some other applications and opened in Adobe AI to convert into a vector. The Vector graphics were then copied into PS and were saved as a CSH presets (with this, I use PS 6 - a very old copy of PS now - so the CSH presets works fine with all the versions of PS from 6 upwards as well as all versions of Elements from the very first edition (there must be some people using that?)
You can find more about the CSH via the wonderful Adobe site such as how to create them, how to modify them, etc This is general help about the vector tools. You can also find a whole lot more information via our video tutorials
