How to load the Photoshop custom shapes

Load the CSH into PS by double clicking the CSH presets. You can also right click the CSH presets and select the open option. You can also place them into the presets folder and then access the CSH presets via the panel in PS or elements. You can also use the load / replace commands in the same menu. You can also load them via the edit menu preset manager. The load command will load the CSH files into the presets panel and append them to the existing set, the replace command will remove all the existing set and replace them with the new CSH but it will ask before it deletes or removes any items that have created since the last load (you may add new vectors to the panel at any time but you don't want to lose them by accident). You can load all the items included in this collection though I am not sure how successful you will be loading all 13,000 at one go (I have never tried it) but I know some have and it generally seems to be very happy with loading many vector sets before it complains (many years ago, the limit for the load was 500 but that has changed)

What other collections do you have

Well there is a huge brushes set with Photoshop brushes collection; there is also a Fireworks symbols set with quite a few artworks; Flash symbols 5,000 set; patterns collection with 2900 or so bitmaps; Illustrator brushes collection with 16,000 brushes; 180 Plugins in a plugins collection for PC Photoshop and psp etc; there is also a Photoshop gradients. There are also a lot of other sets but they are generally 100+ items only. All the sets on the site are by graphicxtras.com

 

How to browse the CSH files using a browser tool

You can purchase a special browser tool via Tumasoft that allows for the browsing of all the CSH presets. You can also export PNGs of those CSH. You can also do the same with the ABR and PAT and other file formats for use in PS. The set is available for the PC as well as one available for MAC and earlier PC (Adobe air)

How many Photoshop custom shapes in the set

For ages the shapes collection was a 12,000 presets set, it is now a 13,000 presets collection and includes many new works for your projects.

 

What versions are included

Yes, they are all for PS and PS Elements and can be used with most versions of the application from the very old 6 (released in 2000) as well as all versions up from that. They are also for all versions of PS Elements from 1 upwards. Unless there is a radical change in CSH, they should work fine with future releases as well (though I have no idea about that). The format has been fairly consistent for many years. They can be used with the creative cloud CC 2014 2015 and I assume they will be fine with CC 2016 and CC 2017 and beyond.

 

How can I use them in other applications

Not directly as the CSH is only for PS and PS Elements as well as a few other applications but if you have one or other of the applications then you can create vector artworks and then export them either via the export menu (to save them as vector AI documents) or via the file save command as PDF (vector etc) as well as file save as PNG or TIFF to use the shapes in Painter, PSP and many others. You can also drag the items to the CC library and then use them in applications such as Illustrator. You can also copy them via the pasteboard to tools such as Affinity Photo

 

How can I use them

Use in commercial as well as personal work, use to create items that can be used in turn to create new items for sale. Use to create ever more complex artworks that can also be sold. No time limits are imposed, no restrictions, world wide use, no credit is required. You can also use them to create logos, books, adverts, packaging, ceramics, posters, items for sale on Zazzle, items for sale on Cafepress and much more. If you have any questions about the possible uses, please let us know

 

Who created them

All the presets on this site were created by me (Andrew Buckle) of graphicxtras.com. They were created in a mix of Illustrator and other Vector graphics and then imported into PS and then saved via the right side menu of the presets panel 'save' command. The CSH format being set at 6 for most of the versions (not CS6 but 6.. I know that is a long time ago but it still works fine in Windows 10)

 

How to use them with cookie cutters in PSE

Yes, they can be used as cookie cutters as well as standard vector tools in PS Elements. Sadly there is no equivalent tool in PS

Video tutorials - how can I find out more about the custom shapes

There are many video tutorials about them via our graphicxtras channel on Youtube. You can find how to load the items, how to convert them to other formats, how to use them as a source for brushes, how to convert them to other formats, how to use them with opacity and blending modes, use them as layers and paths, use them multiple times, add styles, use them as smart objects, use them with smart filters and much more. Any questions, please let us know

 

How can I use them as a brush stroke or pattern

Yes, you can use the vector presets as a source for 1000s and 1000s of brushes and patterns. Create the art and then use the edit menu define brush command as well as the edit menu define pattern command. You can also use them as an excellent source for displacement maps, bump maps, 3D effects and more

 

How do I fill them or add strokes

Depends on the mode. If you use as a layer then you can set the color via the top options bar, set the fill and stroke. The fill and stroke can be set to solid colors as well as gradients and also patterns. If you are using them as paths then there is no fill but you can set a stroke via the path menu. If you add them as a fill pixel then you have to set the color before you add the vector preset. Another option is to then use adjustment layers to recolor the fill pixel.
