Conversion of PDF
The PDF sets can be used in most of the major graphic applications such as PS, AI as well as parts of the Adobe Creative Suite - you can also use them in many of the Corel graphic packages as well as many others such as GIMP, Apple Pages and more. You can also just use a conversion tool to convert the PDFs to EPS or JPG or TIFF
In many applications you can open the PDFs via the open command, in some you can also import the PDF artworks as layers via the place / import command
A dialog will appear as below in many applications such as PS
You can also use the PDF artworks as a layer (as below) - notice the smart artwork logo - it can be re-edited at any point
You can also generally open the PDF artworks via the open command - how they are opened in GIMP, apple pages, Xara Photo will vary.
You may have to set the resolution via a dialog like below though some applications set the resolution via an import preferences
Opening the files in Xara
Many of the sets include the items over multiple PDFs, some sets include the files in a single file with multiple PDFs - Xara can only open the former but in those cases, the sets also include the same in EPS and they can be opened in Xara as well as others
Once opened in Xara (Photo, this is version 6), you can manipulate the artwork in many different ways such as apply bevels to the PDF as well as add shadows and more
