Our new fiend Andrew Buckle of graphicxtras.com gave us some awesome circle shapes to share with our readers.
This is really a cool site for masses of shapes. They have tons (many of them, not a weight of them ha) of arrow and animal shapes. They also have about 10,000 brushes, and lots of gradients and patterns.
The shapes are for Photoshop CS6 CS5 CS4 CS3 Cs2 etc to version 6, as well as Photoshop elements 10, 9, 8 etc to version 1 – PC and MAC. The shapes are loaded in Photoshop via the file open command as well as via the edit menu preset manager and also via the custom shapes tool / custom shapes palette load / replace commands.
The graphicxtras.com site is a site devoted to resources for use in Photoshop, Illustrator, PaintShop Pro as well as many other applications. You can find 10000s of shapes, brushes, font sets (which can be used in 1000s of other applications) , patterns, graphic packs (PDF), tiles, displacements, gradients, styles, plug-ins and much more.
All the items on the site are for commercial as well as personal use, all royalty-free, all are by graphicxtras.com (Andrew Buckle), no time limits on their use. All the shapes, brushes etc are inexpensive but full of great quality designs for your projects. Been developing resources and plugins since about 1995 and was the developer of the popular 1000 filters series of ‘Andrew’s Filters’ (since replaced with a smaller 180 plugins collection for use in CS5 etc).
