Saving Custom Shape Sets
Creating customized sets of shapes is an excellent way to get organized. The next time you need a specific shape all you have to do is select the shape from your organized sets. Organization can save you time, but it also lends a sense of consistency to designs. Using the same customized shapes repeatedly helps to tie the elements of a design together, and Photoshop gives you the perfect way to maintain that consistency with customized shape sets.

- Click the Shape list arrow to see a list of the current shapes.
