You can use them as layers, with fill content layers, via the scripts and fills, basic fills, stamp brush, layer styles overlay, layer styles and bevel & textures etc. You can also use the PNGs as a source for brushes, textures, styles, displacement maps and more. You can also use them with the custom shapes tool and the fill and stroke. The new scripted feature can use the assets as spirals, along curves / paths, random fills, symmetry (and there are many different symmetry options to create a vast range of image results), brick fills, weaves and more. With the more recent versions of the app, you can now see a preview of the script as well as the ability to change the color / brightness / scaling / density etc of the tiles.
If you open the PNG images via the place command as basic layers and these can be merged (or partially merged) and blended in 1000s of ways using the powerful blending modes (lighten, difference, color burn, exclusion, multiply, overlay, linear burn, darken etc) in Adobe ® PS and Adobe ® Photoshop ® Elements. They can also be used as layers in Adobe ® Photoshop ® via the layer menu fill layer command and these also can be combined in millions of different ways. You can also place the items and then use them as smart objects with smart filter as well as adjustment layers to create 1000s of variants of the items in the set and the items can be quickly added to the CC library and used as powerful linked library assets and used in tools such as Illustrator
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 the bevel section / textures. They can also then be saved as permanent styles ASL format for future projects. They can also be used with Photoshop styles and combined with shapes into a smart object. You can also combine them with adjustment layers (to color the items in 1000s of ways) as well as smart filters. You can use the overlays as well as bevel / textures once or multiple times via the smart objects. With the CC release for 2015 you can now use them with multiple shadows and multiple glows etc from the layer style dialog but sadly the tile overlay and bevels cannot use the items multiple times (not in this version anyway) but you can use them (weirdly) multiple times with the stroke feature and the tile overlay

As the set includes the artworks in PNG, this is not such an issue as with PAT files. Simply open the files via the file open command and then use the define command found in the edit menu. The set also includes a set of PS actions that can be used to load all the files in the folder into the presets panel. Once you have the items in the panel, you can also go to the right side menu and save the set as a PAT file. the PAT file can then be loaded via the panel load / replace commands with the load command appending to the existing set of tiles and the replace removing the current set and replacing them with all your new items (this is a better solution sometimes as excessive tiles, however useful they are, can really drag the resources in the startup of PS). If you add the PAT file to the presets folder beneath PS then you can then load them by name The PNG files can also be added, if you are using the most up to date version of PS, in the creative cloud libraries. You can then select the files via that library and drag them into the document and use them as a layer as well as defining them via the edit menu commands. You can also use the PNG files in many other apps as well and use them as more than just tiles as you can use them as a great source for brushes as well as displacement maps in tools such as the excellent Affinity Photo
They were all created in the powerful plugin tool filter forge using one of their filters. They were then further modified in Adobe ® Photoshop ® and saved as PNG images for use as resources such as tiles / brushes / displacement maps / environment maps / smart objects etc
