How to use the CSH and PDFs in the sets ???
You can use the CSH presets only in Adobe PS and elements, though saying that there are a few presetbrowsers out there that can read the format (such as Breeze from Tumasoft which is a great application for checking through all the different types of presets such as the strokes and vector artworks etc as well as generating a selection of thumbnails or print of a series of the thumbnails). The CSH presets are stored in version 6 format (which is a very old format now but still very useful and one that still works fine even in Windows 10) but it is readable in all versions up to the latest, CC 2014 / CC 2015 (and I am quite certain will still be readable in the CC 2016 and CC 2017 etc. 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, Inkscape, Apple Pages etc
How to use the PDFs with the 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. You can also combine multiple artworks together into a smart object and then drag those into a CC library as well as combine those angled masterpieces with effects and adjustment layers.
How to load them in PS ?
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 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.
Video tutorials - how to find out more ???
Blur effects (YOUTUBE video tutorial) - 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 (YOUTUBE video tutorial) - 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.
How to export them for use in other applications ????
You don't have to keep them only for use in Adobe PS. You can use them in Corel ® PaintShop Pro, GIMP, Xara, Affinity Designer and Photo 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 (PaintShop Pro), Affinity Photo and other applications. As the artwork is a vector, they can be set to 1000 x 1000 or 500 x 200 or 10000 x 10000, really up to you what size you choose. 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 you can use visual effects and then export the artwork for use in another tool. 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
What can I do with them ????
They can be used in commercial work as well as personal work, you can use them to create items that can be used in turn to create new presets that can be sold and so on (CU4CU). They can be used to create logos, book covers and interiors, illustrations, comics, t-shirts, fashions, advertising, packaging, posters, caps, textiles, ceramics, skateboards, leaflets, web sites, templates, apparel, baby clothes, videos and much more. You can use them to create millions of stunning unique graphics. If you have any questions, please contact us and I will try and answer your questions as quickly as possible.

How to use them with the flame tool render in PS ???
If you are using the latest release of the creative cloud then you can access the flame feature 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 as well as any of the vectors on the site as well as ones you can find on the web) and you can then create multiple types of flames around the edge of the path. You can also add the flame to a layer and then that can be shifted and moved and transformed and duplicated in numerous ways to create all kinds of fiery combinations (as well as using opacity and blending modes to create even more creative effects). 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). If you want to create some awesome fiery effects then a really good application to check out has to be the super Flame Painter 3 Pro which is available via Escape Motions website and also you can find a very good flame / particle feature now in Corel Painter 3 as well. I am certain there are many other applications out there that can be used to create amazing fire effects
How to use them with 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
