Using custom shapes in Photoshop brushes can save you a lot of time. For example, if you need to draw a star, instead of drawing it from scratch using your pen tool, you can actually use a custom shape. Like Photoshop brushes, there are also plenty of Photoshop custom shapes that you can download for free and use in your designs. But unlike Photoshop brushes which are made up of pixels (which means, resolution or size of the image is limited to the maximum set by the author such as 500 pixels, 2500 pixels, etc.), custom shapes on the other hand are made up of vectors. This means that you can enlarge a shape to whatever size you want without losing quality or sharpness.
Not familiar with Photoshop Custom Shapes? If you know how to install and use Photoshop brushes, then you must have a clue on how to use shapes as the steps involved in downloading, installing and using them are practically the same.
