You may also be interested in the Greek ornament brushes as well as truetype fonts for use in many different apps such as PSP and PS and PS Elements and also perhaps the styles / layer effects as well as a selection of custom shapes for PS and PS Elements ??
The set includes the artworks in PNG format and PAT format. They are identical in content though but vary in format and PAT can only be used (generally) by PS and PSE and PNG can be used by 100s of applications such as Affinity Photo and PSP. You can open the PAT files in a number of ways by double clicking the file as well as right clicking the file and selecting the required version of PS to open (you may have more than one version installed) as well as just adding the PAT file to the presets section in the PS folders and accessing by name via the preset panel right side menu. You can use the same right side menu of the preset panel to load and replace the current set. I would not recommend loading too many as too many tiles can really slow down the startup of PS. You can also load them via the edit menu preset manager. The PNG files can be loaded via the file open command as well as the file place command in PS. You can then define it as a tile via the edit menu define command. You can also define them as a brush stroke. The set is supplied with a selection of actions that can be used to run through all the PNG files in a folder and load them all in one go and this is available via the automate and batch process commands in the file menu (depending on your system you might like to break the PNG files into a number of separate folders and load them as groups of files and not the entire set for reasons explained above). The PNG files can also be re-colored, modified, distorted, combined and much more and then added as new tiles so literally millions of great artworks can be created with even a small set of source PNG files. You can also store the PNG files into the CC libraries and then access them at any time and also in other parts of the CC subscription.
You can load the PNG files via the file open command as well as the file place command. You can also load them and use them as tiles via the gradient tool (bitmap option) as well as via the new fill layer command (bitmap option). The tiles can be scaled and rotated and combined in multiple ways and modified further using the filter features and blending modes and adjustments of the AP application. You also load them in other parts of the app such as apply image command as well as the displace filter command.
With the latest release of the CC 2014 (October) subscription, libraries have been added. The libraries features means resources such as brushes, tiles, etc can be shared across machines (as part of the subscription) as well as different OS and different projects. You can use it as a store of all the work for a particular project or just perhaps work in progress or work in a certain color or style. You can also use them with the PAT files. Create a fill content layer and then drag that from the image to the CC dynamic library and it will be stored in the current library. To re-use at any point, just drag the pattern to the image and all the scaling etc are restored - you can then re-modify the tile as well as blend with other items
If you have any questions about the set, please contact us. You can find all our tutorial videos via the graphicxtras channel on the Youtube.com site as well as on the TipDesk.com website (adding more all the time). You can find out how to load install them, how to load them, how to load them via the place command, how to rotate them, how to add them as fill content, use with styles, use with the CC libraries, use with Affinity Photo, use in PSP, how to re-color the artwork, how to transform them, how to warp and much more.
You can also use them via the layer style menu and the powerful overlay. You can also use them with the stroke section in the layer style dialog as well as texture section in the bevel section. You can combine the results of those settings with others such as the gradients and colors etc by using blending modes inside the style such as difference and darken etc. With the latest release of CC you can now add multiple gradients etc but sadly not multiple tiles though you can add multiple strokes (not that they are that effective as the result is fairly coarse after the third or fourth stroke) They can also then be saved as permanent styles ASL format for future use. If you use them as smart objects, you can apply multiple styles / overlays / strokes / textures to the same image. You can also add the results of all these tiles and styles into the CC libraries if you are using a fairly recent version of the app as part of the CC libraries.
