Photoshop star vector with free PSD file. I did this nice vector star in Photoshop because I love the 3d effect especially on texts and vector shapes. It came out so pro (taking into account that I'm not a pro just a self taught designer) that I decided to share it with you. The PSD star comes fully layered so you can easily see/change the settings. Being a vector drawing allows you to modify the shape and color without loosing the quality of the image. I guess many of you already know how to make a star in Photoshop, you can either draw it from the scratch or use a star custom shape. My Photoshop star comes in 4 colors, put in 4 different groups so that you can easily work with the PSD file. Hope you like it!
