Photoshop frame shapes and loading them
The set is supplied in CSH format. You can load them by double clicking the CSH file or right clicking the item and selecting on the versions of PS to open them with or perhaps select PS Elements. You can also open them in some versions of PS via the file open command. You can place the CSH file into the presets folder and then access the items via right side menu of the presets palette. You can also use the same palette and menu to load and replace (browsing for the set as then the file set can be placed in any location say on a cloud server). You can also use the same via the edit menu and preset manager.
Photoshop frame shapes and video tutorials
You can find all our video tutorials via Youtube in the graphicxtras channel. You can also find a selection of other tutorials via the TipDesk.com website. You can find out how to load them, install them, use them as smart objects, how to add smart adjustments, how to use in other apps such as Affinity Photo, how to use them in animations, how to use them as a brush resource, use them as a tile, use them with blending modes, use as a path and then combine with renders such as tree and flame, how to use with layer styles and much more. If you have any questions for us, please let us know and we will try and create a few videos on the subject.
Quick mask and frame Photoshop shapes
A quick video showing the use of some of the frame shapes from the pack 195. The video shows the use of the quick mask feature combined with the frame custom shapes and how you can 1) use the frame as a layer 2) use the frame as a selection for the pasting of paths into 3) applying special effects to the frame / mask. The video shows the use in Adobe PS CC CS6 but the same basic approach can be used in other versions. In PS Elements, you can also use the frame curved custom shapes with the powerful cookie cutter tool to create instant frames (would love to see Photoshop to add a basic frame creation feature but I can't see that happening any time soon but we can always hope) Video showing the use of the curved frame custom shapes and the creation of frames
Photoshop frame shapes and variants
You can use a single item and just add to an image using paths / selections etc but you can always modify the vector artwork in 1000s of ways by using a number of approaches. The key thing is to add the item as a layer and as a layer, it is a vector made up of a number of points and you can simply select the points for that and drag them from their existing position by using the direct selection tool. You can create 1000s of variants using that approach. You can also use the same vector layer by combining it with the current layer using the set operations - the key thing is to stop the 'new layer' option (on the top bar) and select the combine command (or subtract etc) and then add the same artwork or other layers to the work - you can then finish off and use the merge command to blend them all into one vector which can be saved to the CSH palette via the define command in the edit menu. You can also use much the same approach with the freeform pen tool as all the paths created there can be combined with the original vector layer. That too can also be modified further using the direct selection tool found in the toolbox Tutorial showing creating of variant vectors in PS (Youtube video)
