Arch swatches for Illustrator

glow effects in Photoshop

 

Glow effects added via the camera raw filter in PS, you can always copy the filled path from AI to PS and then add effects and return to AI. Not that the actual tiles work as well from one to the other. The default type works ok but the other fills such as hex often require a little more work to use them in the PS tools (even if it is possible). It is just easier copying a path from AI to PS than trying to get the patterns to work cross app.

How to load them ??

They are supplied in an AI file. There are many videos available via our graphicxtras channel showing how to add the AI files to the app. You can just load them via the palette and other library functionality. You can also add them to the presets folders and then you can just access them by name. You can also just open them via the source file but then they are limited only to that file but it does mean you can change the source paths (perhaps a black path into an orange or green one or perhaps add additional paths to the library)

 

shadow hex

 

You can quickly add a shdow to any of the paths either via the editor (edit source) or by using two filled paths with red and black fills. The fill type was also set to hex instead of the default grid option
