Photoshop is probably the most comprehensive tool you can use when designing graphics. As for myself I use it to edit some of my website header, make some icons and all that. But there is one thing I have discovered while creating some weird looking icons, it was hard to create shapes and then I came across with Photoshop shapes; I did not realized that there are Photoshop custom shapes created by talented and generous artists ready to download. What is exciting about Photoshop shapes is that you can create your own shape by combining two or more shapes. It comes in handy if you want to create something extraordinary designs for your website or even use them as vector graphics. Here are some websites where you can download free Photoshop custom shapes.
