Export to graphic applications
You don't have to keep the connection shapes only for Adobe Photoshop, 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 to open them in vector apps (not all but certainly most). You can also just apply them 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 custom shape is a vector, you can make the file size of your raster export any size - say 5000 x 5000 and then import that. You can also use the shape decorative graphic to create strokes and tiles in Adobe PS and others and export. You can also use the shapes 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 or apply transformations and warps, the sky is definitely not the limit.
Connection shapes for Photoshop videos
You can find all our videos about the custom shapes via the graphicxtras channel on youtube.
You can select a connection shape decorative graphic in Adobe PS (CC 2014 for the video but the same for earlier) and use the various transform tools to create a totally new and unique custom shape and that can then be saved as a new shape for future use
