Following our collection of 2,000+ Patterns for Photoshop, we are bringing you a massive collection of Custom Shapes. Like patterns, shapes are a somewhat overlooked resource for Photoshop.
If you require silhouettes or solid shapes including people, animals, arrows, speech bubbles, etc., suitable custom shapes will probably be available, but you may not think of using shapes and may focus your search on clip art or brushes, or maybe try to create your own. This collection contains more than 2,000 custom shapes in 43 sets, all of which include a .csh file.
