To save a shape or path as a custom shape:

1 In the Paths palette, select a path—either a vector mask for a shape layer, a work path, or a saved path.

2 Choose Edit > Define Custom Shape, and enter a name for the new custom shape in the Shape Name dialog box. The new shape appears in the Shape pop-up palette.

3 To save the new custom shape as part of a new library, select Save Shapes from the pop-up palette menu.

You can also use the Preset Manager to manage libraries of custom shapes. For more information, see "Managing libraries with the Preset Manager (Photoshop)" on page 54.
