Cookie cutter and the shapes ?

Yes, you can use the presets with the PS element cookie cutter tool. The cookie cutter tool has now been tucked away in the PSE toolbox next to the crop tool. Not sure why it has been demoted as a tool as I have always found it very useful. You can use once or multiple times to cut away pixels from an image.
