100 Shield shapes artworks for Adobe ® PS CC 2015 CS6 CS5 etc Elements, PSP, Illustrator etc are super colorful artworks in standard PDF (Adobe Acrobat format)

You can also convert them into JPG and PNG and other formats to use in 100s of other applications. There are notes below on how to convert them (it is fairly easy to do)
They are all for commercial (CU4CU) use - you can use them in countless projects such as ceramics, fashions, leaflets, books, adverts, records, textiles, videos, napkins, fabrics, carpets, items for resale, patches, prints, pet tags, mouse pads, items for sale, kits.
PC and MAC OS X.
They can be combined, re-colored, exported, warped, blended, effects applied and more. All vectors for any size of work so you can use them to create super large objects as well as use them as small icons without any loss in detail. You can also edit them in tools such as Illustrator and Inkscape so if you wish to move some of the parts of the designs then you can quickly do that in those
On buying the shield shapes, you receive the download link to the vectors along with documentation and gallery and serial number for any future updates.
Above, the PDF layers can be used in Photoshop via the open command as well as the place command. Personally, I prefer to load them via the place command and they can be then quickly duplicated again and again. The shield shapes can also be used in PSP and GIMP etc. You can change the color of the items. As the items can be imported as smart objects then you can quickly add smart adjustments to change the color of the individual presets as well as use a vast selection of smart filters
They are all in PDF. PDF is the Adobe Acrobat format and it is a file format fairly common on the web. They can be converted from PDF to PNG as well as TIFF and others

You can use them to create amazing commercial use items as well as personal items, you can also use them to create items that can be used to create new items for sale. You can use them to create logos, documents, clothes, fashions, necklaces, posters, cups, trousers, posters, for selling items on Zazzle.com and Cafepress.com and equivalent, wrapping paper, frames, videos, cards, artworks, illustrations, comics, mousemats and much more. If you have any questions, you can always contact us on email@example.com
You can load them via the open command as well as the place command. Loading them via the place command means the shield shape is opened as a layer (as well as a smart object). You can always flatten them into the current document. As a smart object, it does mean the result can be edited at any later stage or the items can be replaced with other elements. Opening will display a dialog requesting the size of the file as well as the resolution (this is the same in PSP etc). You can find many free conversion tools on the web such as "PDF to JPG online converter" etc or just use PS or PSP etc to convert the files from that vector format to JPG or PNG.
You can find all our videos about the graphicxtras channel on youtube. There are many videos on how to open the PDFs, how to recolor the PDF, how to edit the them, use them as sources for tiles, distort them, combine them with adjustment layers, how to change the curve, how to edit them in Illustrator, how to use the PDFs as a brush format file and much more. If you have any questions, please contact us and I will try and create a video or two about them
The shield shapes were created in Illustrator. They were all developed from a set of core artworks and then re-colored and effects added. The artwork was then all saved on individual artboards and then exported as PDF files.

and many others
PDF is a great format and it can be used to any size so any of the shield shapes can be set to any size (they are not limited to the previously set dimensions). Most applications can use the format as well such as Xara and Pages etc but if you can't use it in your favourite application (I don't think Painter supports the format) then what can you do. Well you can convert it to PNG or JPG but PNG is probably the best format as it is lossless. OK, if you have an application like PSP or GIMP, you can use those to convert the file from PDF to JPG or PNG or if you are on a mac then you can use something like Preview which is part of the mac OS X system. There are also 100s of great sites to convert the PDF files such as PDF to PNG site or just check out a site like wikihow or go to a site like convertfiles.com.
If you are on a mac, the best bet has to be preview and you can quickly get to that via the launchpad. Open the PDF document in preview and then go to the export command in the file menu and set the resolution, say to 600 pixels per inch to get a fairly large document which can then be imported or opened in numerous apps. Using something like 600 means you will end up with a super large document such as 5000 x 6000 pixels which can then be resized as well as modified in many different ways.
If you want to use the PDFs in an applications such as the excellent Clip Studio Paint then you will need to convert the file from PDF to PNG as the app cannot load PDF files, which is a mega pity.
