The Ultimate Roundup of 1500+ Free Photoshop Custom Shapes

When it comes to custom shapes, I can't stop remembering my drawings from childhood. All kids in the yard had a competition in designing the best shape. We drew ships, cars, people, ornaments, and more to get the right to be called a creativity master, lol. However, today's innovations make things much easier, hence, you can easily enrich any web project with a large number of free Photoshop custom shapes.

By the way, custom shapes were introduced in the 6th Photoshop edition, they allow you do much more with vector graphics than a pen tool. Photoshop custom shapes are very useful, if you do not have an appropriate brush you can use a readymade custom shape preset. Shapes differ from brushes greatly they can be easily scaled to large sizes without loss of quality and sharpness.

FAQ

What pre-made shapes are usually used in designs?

Any shape you can think of is used in some design. The more pre-made shapes a designer has – the more options he has for his project. People, cars, animals, plants, artificial objects – literally, everything that surrounds us in everyday life.

Why do designers use pre-made shapes?

Designers are artists and they definitely can draw all the shapes they need manually but that will take time. If the project doesn’t need some original drawings it is much easier and faster to take the shape made by someone else.

Are there such pre-made shapes only for Photoshop?

Nope, designers create such sets for Adobe Illustrator and other drawing software too. However, Photoshop is the most popular of the drawing software programs, so we focus on it in this article.
