Photoshop chevron shapes - CSH Presets / PDFs
You can use the CSH presets only in Adobe PS and elements, the format can be used in a few other browser tools but I am not aware of any other application that can read the artwork. The CSH presets is stored in version 6 format (which is a very old format now) but it is readable in all versions up to the latest, CC 2014. You can read and load them in all of the creative suite versions as well as the standalone versions of the application. PDFs, they can be used in many other apps as well as just Adobe PS and Elements such as Affinity Photo, PSP, CorelDRAW etc
Chevron PDFs in Creative cloud libraries
With the release of Creative Cloud 2014.2 (October 2014) release you can now open the PDF files and then save them to the new creative cloud libraries - simply drag the file from the document and to the library and then the PDF will be available as a future resource. The same work will be available on other machines as well as other OS (PC or Mac) as well as in Illustrator. You can save all of the PDFs to the library and have them immediately available instead of loading each via the open command.
How to load the chevron shapes into Photoshop ?
There are a number of approaches to loading the CSH presets into Adobe PS and the easiest is probably the double click approach and that will load all the current set into the application and will co-exist with the previous CSHs installed. You can also right click the file and you should (if the file association is still valid) be able to select the file and load that (or open). For future use, it is probably best to place the CSH presets into the presets folder marked 'custom shapes' and then the set can be accessed via the right side menu of the presets palette in Adobe PS. You can also right click the same menu and load / replace the CSH but it does mean that you have to browse for the files if you have not placed the CSH presets in the presets folder. The replace command removes all the existing CSH vectors. To return to the default, use the preset command. Another way to load the CSH presets into Adobe PS is via the edit menu preset manager. You can find a number of videos on the subject of opening the CSH presets via the graphicxtras channel on Youtube. With the most recent versions of CC you can now save the layers to the CC libraries and use them in future projects, also you don't have to then re-open the CC file.
Chevron Photoshop shapes / Video tutorials
Blur effects - a video to show how to use them to create truly unique blurring effects in Adobe PS, they can also be modified and new graphics can be created which in turn can be used as a source for new themed blurring effects. There are also many additional videos available about the CSH and PDFs on the graphicxtras channel on youtube.com as well as Tipdesk.com such as how to load them, how to distort them, how to use them as paths, combine them with other paths, how to use them with the blur tools, how to blend them with images and more - if there are any particular questions, please let us know and we will create a video on the subject. Source for brick fill patterns - a quick video showing some of the options and how you can create them for use with the scripted pattern tool. They can be an excellent source for millions of unique tiles.
Shape blurs and chevron Photoshop shapes
Probably one of the best filters around in PS, well it was before the blur gallery was added. The tool uses the presets themselves in the blur so literally all kinds of blurs can be generated using this tool from any number of the artworks included in this set as well as any of the other artworks on the site. Works from the presets actually in the palette and not from all the other sets though (though I know some people love to add all the presets into one palette and wonder why it takes PS a while to start up). The blur offers two options, the radius for the effect and the presets. If you set the radius too high then the result is very much the same for all the presets, a totally blurred image. The filter works best with any of the presets and with a lower setting, not too low that nothing happens or another option is to use the edit menu fade after applying the filter effect. Using a lower setting means to get a decent blurring effect you may have to use the filter a few times before you achieve the best result. The filter works excellently in separate channels as well as all three. You can also combine the effect with selections etc as well as combine the filter with other effects such as setting up actions to apply the tool a number times perhaps combined with fades etc as well as other possible combinations.
Export Chevron Photoshop shapes to other applications
You don't have to keep them only for use in Adobe PS. You can use them in other applications such as Corel PaintShop Pro, GIMP, Xara, Xpress and many more. If you use them as a layer then you can also copy and paste into Illustrator or use the export command to export the path as an AI document to be opened in some vector applications such as Inkscape or DRAW. You can also just apply them as a pixel / raster image and then save them as a PSD or TIFF image 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 graphic. You can also use the decorative graphic to create strokes and tiles in Adobe PS and others and export any of those. You can also use them more than once to perhaps build a far more complex graphic and then export that to another application. 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. With the most recent versions of CC Creative cloud you can also export the layers as well as pixel layers to the CC library and use them either in future projects or use them in other applications such as Illustrator and also they are backed up securely to the Adobe server

Flames and chevron Photoshop shapes
If you are using the latest release of the creative cloud then you can access the new flame tool and this is available via the filter render menu. The flame tool can be combined with a current selected path (any of the vectors included on this page) and you can then create multiple types of flames around the edge of the path. You can also add the flame to a layer which can then be shifted and combined and duplicated. You can also run the flame render multiple times to create a whole range of exciting fire themed images. The tree tool also can use the path so you can then also wrap trees around the image. You can use the tree feature to create some truly abstract and weird and wonderful art (something not particularly achievable with the flame render). You can also use the paths with a number of the other renders in PS such as random fill and also the curve option found in the scripts in the patterns / edit menu. Create the path and then go to the path palette and save the path and then go to the edit menu / fill command and select patterns and set scripts to on and if the path is selected then the path will be used in the fill (and a new offer of scattering will be displayed in the random fill)

Chevron Photoshop custom shapes and channels
The CSH presets can be used on a single RGB image but you can also use them with separate channels. You can use them in the red channel and ignore all the others or perhaps add them in different channels in different positions and different sizes or combine them with effects in different channels. You can also use the channel palette to split the image into a red image, green etc and then you can add the vectors to them in those files before merging all the results back into a new RGB image via the merge command found in the palette. You can also repeat the same action over other image modes and individual channels so you can apply them to the lightness channel and A and B channels of the LAB image mode etc
