You don't have to keep the checkerboard custom shapes only for Photoshop, of course not, you can use them in other applications such as PaintShop Pro, GIMP and many more. If you add the graphic as a layer, you can also copy and paste into Illustrator or use the export command to export the path as an AI and that file can then be opened in CorelDRAW / Inkscape etc.


You can also just add it as a pixel / raster image and then save as a PNG or JPG file and open that file in PSP and other applications. As the shape is a vector, you can make the file size of your raster export any size - say 10000 x 10000 and then import that. You can also use the shape decorative graphic to create strokes and tiles in Adobe PS and others and export any of those. You can also use them once or multiple times in a single project and create a far more complex image than is possible with just a single vector.


You can save them as a PSB file as well via smart objects if you are using the latest versions of creative cloud. Or use visual effects and then export. The shapes set is an unlimited selection of amazing resources that can be of use in many different apps and not just Adobe PS
