Many different artworks are included in the sets such as the above zigzag - the item can also have a very basic shadow by just duplicating the vector


abstract artwork with added path


You can rotate and transform all the vectors in numerous ways as well as adding additional paths to the item


They are all stored in CSH, this is the native format for the use with Photoshop as well as PS Elements. Select the custom shapes tool in the Photoshop toolbox to display the custom shapes dropdown - go to the right side menu and select the load / replace command to load the tribal shapes CSH presets.


background repeat copies jagged


You can use them once or multiple times across an image. Duplicate the items multiple times using the alt or duplicate command and then align using the smart guides or alignment tools.


If you add the tribal shapes CSH presets to the presets folder 'custom shapes' then the shapes name will also appear in that dropdown list and you will be able to open the trbal shapes in a single action. The tribal shapes can, in some versions, be added to the application via the open command or just by double clicking the CSH tribal shapes file (this does vary)

You can combine them with other paths to create colorful unique artworks and you can also then duplicate and create patterns and more

Cookie cutter and Adobe PS Elements etc

The tribal custom shapes can be used as normal shapes in Elements but they can also be used as cookie cutters as well. Select the cookie cutter tool in PSE (this is now a little harder to find in the PSE toolbox) and then you will see the various options on the top options bar such as the graphics (which can be any of the vector CSH) as well as feathering and also crop (which will crop the entire document to the size of the vector graphic). If the crop is not set to "on" then the art is just placed in the original location (feathered or not) with the full document and all the image outside of the cookie cutter is destroyed.


While applying the cookie cutter in PS Elements, you can constrain the proportions as well as rotate & scale & shear.


Once you have the cookie cutter graphic, you can always re-apply another cookie cutter to remove even more away from the result. You can use the end result as a source for strokes as well as patterns. You can also apply visual effects to the cookie cutter. If you want to have the original image as well as cookie cutter shape then before using the tool, simply duplicate the layer as many times as you wish and use the cookie cutter on those (in different locations if you wish) and you can then also combine those multiple cut layers using blending modes such as difference / darken to create some truly stunning work.


There are many videos on my youtube channel giving some uses for the cookie cutter


 elements aligned as shape layers


The tribal Photoshop shapes can be used as layers and the layers can be combined and aligned and distributed in many different ways - above in a basic row
