I have a bunch of shapes on a CD, that I used to upload into older photoshops. Problem is that when I go to do it now the "upload" button make me look for CSH files. (Custom Shapes), and my shapes are either, .gif, or the thumbnails are in groups of 16, and are html format. How do I get these into photoshop CS2? That's already looking for .csh files, so it never sees my .gifs or .htmls to upload them. Where can I put the HTML groups of thumbnail shapes or the individual shapes that are .gif when you take them off the html file.

How can I get all my old collection of shapes (.gif)s into CS2 P.S. If I put the bunch of html "groups' into ps. plug-ins folder or Custom Shapes folder with photoshop CS2 know what to do with them then?

Photoshop can only load custom shapes in .CSH (custom shape) format -- and that's a vector format.

For your image files: just load them as images.

And Photoshop has never loaded HTML.

And no HTML, image files, or custom shapes belong in the plugins folder.
The custom shapes (CSH) you can put in the presets folder for easier access.
