The flower font designs are all in truetype TTF and EPS vector shapes. The TTF set can be installed on the PC (Windows) by placing the TTF file into the font panel of control panel (this has changed from version to version of Windows - certainly different from the old windows 3.1 days). On the MAC OS X, double click the TTF truetype and the set has been added to the user's library. The set can then be accessed via the typeface dropdown of most applications such as CorelDRAW, QuarkXpress PaintShop Pro etc. The EPS shape designs can be loaded into many applications via the file open command as well as file / place command of many applications. There are very few applications that fail to support the set (Poser comes to mind)
Exporting designs to CorelDRAW, Pages etc
The vector designs included in the set can be used with most applications but if you want to use them as normal vectors then in many cases you will have to expand the shape or convert to a different shape format; or if you want to use the design as a raster format file such as PNG then in many cases you will either have to use the application's raster command or use an export command to save the files to PNG format (or JPG GIF TIFF PSD etc). A useful application to convert the designs is the "font pestle" app but you can generally use most of the top range applications to save them to vector or raster format. Not all applications allow for this though (such as WordPad). Inkscape might be a useful alternative and it is free, you can then save the vector designs for use in many other formats.
For Photoshop / Painter / Word / Illustrator etc ?
Yes, you can use them in 99.9999 % of applications, there are a few exceptions ( Poser 8 / 9 / 10 being one of them, which is odd as I would love to see a text feature in that wonderful tool). They also work well in most 3D applications though such as Maya, etc. You can use them in Painter, PS Elements, GIMP, PSP, Photo-paint, Typestry, DRAW, Illustrator, DRAW, Inkscape etc
Use as other resources
Yes, you can use them to create wonderful new resources such as brushes and patterns for your work. Just apply and then flatten the image and then select the area to be saved as a new resource and go to the Photoshop edit menu and then use the define brush or define pattern command. In other applications it might be a simple case of saving the shape as a bitmap file and then copying the design into a brushes or patterns folder. It does vary from application to application.
Vector designs ?
Yes, all vector designs and can be used with any size of work. If you use the EPS shapes, the shapes are opened and then set to a particular shape / dimensions. The shapes can be changed to any size via the size menu text field. You can also convert the shapes into the native shapes format in many cases and that also remains as a vector and can be used to any size, large or small or anything in between. You can save the shapes to PSP preset shapes etc as well as custom shapes in Photoshop etc
Modify the designs ?
This depends on the applications. In some applications you can only apply the design via the keyboard and set perhaps the size and perhaps rotate / shear the design. In some applications such as Illustrator, you can change the design in millions of ways using the various path tools / direct selection tool etc. You can also simply apply the design and then flatten the vector design with a raster layer in an application and then apply various filter effects to further modify the design . You can change any of the designs in numerous ways as well as combine the shapes to create literally millions of unique shapes
Use in Corel PSP
Use in PaintShop Pro via the text / type tool in the PSP toolbox, select the set from the typeface list and then apply the designs as required (A B C D etc). If you want to use the designs as a preset shape then you can right click the design and you will see the option to convert the shape - the design can then be saved as a normal preset shape format file via the export command (file menu) and saved as a PSPshape format file for future use. The designs can also be modified such as setting the color to a gradient, patterns, solid color etc. You can also them to create amazing psp tubes and more in PaintShop Pro
How to apply ?
You can apply them via the keyboard if you are using the TTF set, as you would Helvetica, Verdana or Times New Roman etc - simply type A B C D etc. A PDF format document is supplied with the zip file showing the relationship between the character / keyboard and the decorative design. The document can be printed out and then saved and used as a reference. If you prefer, it might be easier to use the equivalent file open EPS designs
How can I use them ?
Commercial as well as personal projects, you can use the flower font shapes to create new items that can be in turn sold for commercial use (CU4CU). You can use them to create items such as logos, books, illustrations, adverts, carpets, textiles, ceramics, skateboards, videos, packaging, items for sale on Zazzle, cafepress, mugs, posters, pens, fashions and more.

How did you create the vector designs?
They were created in Illustrator and then were copied into fontlab (a really amazing application and one I recommend you check out) and saved as TTF and a set of vector design eps files.
