When I go to look for shapes like hearts, circles, etc., I only. I only find trees floweres and boats in my shapes presets. Can someone tell me please how to find other things? Instead of an arrow appearing on custom shapes it’s a tree and I cant change it. Any ideas?
From the Window menu choose Shapes
Then from the flyout menu
thank you! why in the world would they do this? just shocking unless someone can tell me why boats and trees are more valuable then arrows, and dialog clouds and other actual useful shapes. trees? same thing with patterns. its water and leaves? so strange. anyway thank you for this solution. the world is somehwat right agin.
Think of it like how "Save for Web" has been deprecated to "legacy" status. It'll be there until a suitable alternative for Save for Web takes its place.
(Though I do agree that the legacy shapes should be easier to find, much like how Save for Web is still in the same location it has been.)
Hello thanks for explaining about legacy shapes... weird they would take that out.
I have a collection of shapes that I've saved throughout the years and now I cant add them because there is no longer a Custom Shapes folder in the Photoshop Presets folder.
Where did that folder go? How can I add my shapes in?
I appreciate your help.
The custom shapes folder can be found in this location
C:\Users\Your Name\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop 2021\Presets\Custom Shapes
Copy them into that folder and select Import Shapes from the menu above and browse to that location or you could just browse to where you have them saved
Thank you, I was able to import them. But there is no longer a Custom Shapes folder.
There is in the loaction I mentioned above, you're looking in this location
C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop 2021\Presets
You need to go to this location
C:\Users\Your Name\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop 2021\Presets\
You can find the AppData folder by typing %appdata% in the Windows address bar and hitting return
Thank you I found it
Thanks so, so much!!!
