All are in standard CSH format. The easiest way to load them is by placing the CSH in the shapes folder of PS and PS Elements and access the file via the palette right side menu dropdown. You should also be able to load the CSH file via the file open command which will add the designs to the palette for selection and use throughout the application. You can also use the edit preset manager tool in most recent versions of the application.

Export to other applications

You don't have to keep the presets only for PS, of course not, you can use them in other applications such as PaintShop Pro, GIMP and many more. If you apply the design as a layer then you can also copy the design and paste into Illustrator or use the export command to export the path as an AI file for the designs to opened in some vector applications. You can also just apply the design as a pixel / raster image and then save the design as a PNG or TIFF file and open that file in PSP and other applications. As the preset is a vector, you can make the file size of your raster export any size - say 10000 x 10000 and then import that. You can also use the design to create strokes and tiles in PS etc and export any of those designs. You can also use the vectors 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 file as well via smart objects if you are using the latest versions of creative cloud. Or apply effects and then export. The set is an unlimited selection of amazing designs that can be of use in many different tools and not just the obvious
