How did you create them

All the artworks in the set were created in Illustrator using a combination of very basic paths. The set is based on a thirties / art deco look and you can find many books on the subject and the style of the period such as the retro graphics cookbook but there are many others available via sites such as The set is also very much influenced by TV shows such as Poiret (ITV TV series starring the wonderful David Suchet)


How can you use them as layers / paths etc

You can use the items in three ways depending on the settings at the top of the panel for PS. You can use them as layers, as paths and fills. They all have their benefits and uses and limitations. You can use them any size, that is the key thing for all the sets but if you add them as a fill then they are set as created so if you want to use them really large, best to work at the size you want to use from the start. If you use the path option then there is no fill or stroke added and you only see the vector path though you can quickly convert this into a selection and that selection can be filled with fills and strokes and gradients and other effects. You can also add the items as fills but it cannot have a stroke added unless you add and create a selection and then add a stroke to that. The layer is probably the best of all the tools as you can add a stroke as well as a fill and also different dash patterns to the stroke. You can also transform the layer so instead of using as created you can shear or rotate and distort and warp them. There are many other great features of these thirties influenced artworks such as using them as smart objects, using them with layer effects etc
