excuse my total ignorance, but does anyone know if it might be possible to convert Photoshop's .CSH files (Custom Shape Format) to standard .SVG or .EPS files? They're both Vector shapes, so it seems a little annoying that the information is stored in such a weird format.

I'm guessing the answer is probably "not a chance", but I thought I'd ask :)

Thanks for any help.

Do you have Photoshop installed?

If so you can "Save As" .EPS format directly.

Unless there's a plugin it doesn't appear that Photoshop saves to .SVG "out of the box".

Thanks for your answer! You can't save an EPS, only a Photoshop EPS... Do you know what the difference is (assuming there is one)? – Django Reinhardt Jul 30 '10 at 18:21
I'm pretty sure EPS and Photoshop EPS are the same thing. – Liam Jan 24 '13 at 10:34
Got a solution for someone who doesn't want to pay for PhotoShop? – Supuhstar Apr 18 '14 at 1:33
