The set includes many wonderful circle custom shapes for use in Adobe Photoshop (you can see many examples of the circular designs below as well as via the video tutorials from graphicxtras. The circle shapes comes with a huge mix of different artwork designs such as radial designs, broken circles, distorted artworks, warped circles, rings and more. All in standard native format CSH vector format and you can load the circle designs via the open command. You can also load the via the custom shapes palette load / replace command. If you wish you can load all the Photoshop circle shapes (in all the CSH, they are spread through multiple sets) into a single CSH presets and load that so you can get instant access to all the circular artworks. The CSH are all vectors so they can be used with any size of Photoshop document. You can use them with small images as well as large designs. The circle shapes can be used as layers as well as paths / selections as well as fills in Adobe PS as well as PS Elements. You control the use of layer / selection via the control bar on selection of the custom shape tool in the Photoshop toolbox. Change the color of the circle fills via the Photoshop toolbox. If applied as a shape layer then you can also use the various layer effects to add metal, gel effects to the shapes.
The circle shapes can be used to create truly amazing blur shapes. You can use them in the shape blur filter found in filter menu. The tool uses the design along with the radius or strength of the effect. Personally I always find the tool a little extreme if the setting is set too high - basically you can't see much but blur if it is too high. The best approach seems to be to apply with low settings and re-apply multiple times to create a distinct shape that sort of matches the input design. You can also combine the effect with selections which can also dampen the end result and leave more of the image. As with many of the Photoshop effects, you can also apply the effect to a duplicated layer and then blend the end result with the original; or use the fade option found in the edit menu. You can also use the shape blur effect as a smart object (convert via the smart filter or use the smart object in the layer menu) which means you can always alter the effect at any point as well as combine multiple shape blurs (though it should be noted that the effect is not the quickest so unless you have a super powerful machine it is probably not a good idea to go for more than a few blurs). You can also apply the effect over channels via the channel palette which does create very weird and wonderful colorful smearing of the designs. There are numerous other ways to use the tool to create stand out designs. There are many videos on the graphicxtras channel on Youtube showing possible ideas for the blur effect such as combining with the blur gallery along with art history and other options in Adobe PS. Sadly, the shape blur is not available in PS Elements

Photoshop perspective warp and shapes
The circle shapes can be used with the powerful perspective warp tool (found in the edit menu of Photoshop). To use, you must convert the shape into a smart object (via the layer command). You can then apply the perspective warp found in the edit menu in Adobe PS. The tool uses two steps to modify the shape, a layout and a warp. You can apply the layout grids in many ways such as up / down, disjointed, from left / right, in a grid etc (sadly you cannot save the pins for future use). You can then click the warp and use the defined pins to warp and distort the design in countless ways. Click OK to process the warp to the select custom shape smart object. You can re-edit the perspective warp which is still live. If you wish to apply another perspective warp then you can turn the combo of perspective warp and Photoshop shape into a smart object (via the layer menu) and use the warp on that (and this can be repeated)
Export to other graphic applications
You don't have to keep the circle shapes only for Photoshop, of course not, you can use them in other applications such as PaintShop Pro, GIMP and many more. If you use them as a shape layer then you can also copy and paste into Illustrator or use the export command to export the path as an AI document for the designs to opened in some vector applications. You can also just apply the design as a pixel / raster image and then save as a PNG 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 (and re-open the file in PSP etc). You can also use the shape decorative graphic to create strokes and tiles in Adobe PS and others and export any of those designs. You can also use the shapes more than once to perhaps build a far more complex design and then export that to another application. You can save the design as a PSB (large format) 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 designs that can be of use in many different tools.
