You don't have to keep them only for Adobe ® Photoshop ®. You can use them in other applications such as PaintShop Pro, GIMP, Word 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. With the most recent version of PS, you can now save the vector / raster to the creative cloud libraries and the result can be used in Illustrator in seconds (hopefully). 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 preset is a vector, the result can be any size. You can also use the graphics to create strokes and tiles in Adobe ® Photoshop ® 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 (large PS file) as well via smart objects if you are using the latest versions of creative cloud. Or use visual effects and then export. The set is an unlimited selection of amazing resources that can be of use in many different apps and not just Adobe ® Photoshop ®
The checkerboard shapes were created using Illustrator. All the designs were created using the plugins I have created (such as the ones in the volume 1 set on this site) and the result of those paths and combinations of, were then saved as a vector design in Illustrator and then copied and pasted into Photoshop and then defined as a custom shape via the edit menu and all the items in the panel were then saved as a CSH file
