Do you get tired of using custom shapes in Photoshop? I sometimes do. For one, they look too plain and old. How about using something else that allows you to add effects on your shapes?
So here is another set of free vector Photoshop brushes that you can use in your designs. This time, I decided to come up with a long list of useful shapes such as circles, squares, rectangles, triangles, stars, gears etc. I hope you will able to find something useful in this list.
If you need a tutorial on how to load these brushes in Photoshop, I have a Photoshop Tutorial on How to Install Photoshop Brushes in Photoshop 7 and above. Checkout also my other Photoshop brushes roundups.
