The PAT files can be only opened in PS and PS Elements and there are a number of ways to load them. The best approach is to add them to the presets folder beneath PS and PS Elements but you can also double click the set as well as right click and select the open with command. On the PC, you can open them via the file open command. You can also drag the items to the application's window. If you place the PAT files in the presets section then you can use the preset panel for the tiles (such as in the fills / etc) right side menu to load and replace the set. You can also do much the same via the edit menu and the preset manager though the menu and commands are slightly different to the main preset panel.

If you want to use the PAT file presets in other apps, you can't. You can use the PNG files, of course. You can also take any of the presets and create a new document and then save that as a PNG etc file. Graphicxtras tutorial : Tutorial on how to copy them for use in Afffinity designer / PSP etc
They can be used as is in Adobe ® Photoshop ® and psp but you can always edit them before use. Best to make a backup though before you do any work with the original. Edit the PNG images and use the define command (edit menu in Adobe ® Photoshop ®) and use that as a tile. As long as you avoid the seams, any changes to the tile will remain as tiles. You can quickly add shadow effects to the PNGs as well as other paths, or re-color the tile and then define as a new item (edit menu). You can also save all the steps to a PS action (via the action's record feature) or script (a little more complex but you can find a lot about scripting via the Adobe site as well as find many different scripts on the web) and then apply the same changes to numerous other tiles in a particular folder or different layer etc If you open the same size of document as the tile, you can also use the layer as a source for new tiles - so if the tile is a 1000 x 1000 (hover over the tile in the panel to see the size) and the document is 1000 x 1000 or multiples of that (2000 x 2000 etc), you can also use that to define and create new amazing tiles
If you open the PNG images via the place command in Adobe ® Photoshop ® you can use them as basic layers and the layers can be combined and merged and blended in 1000s of ways using the powerful blending modes (lighten, difference, darken etc) in Adobe ® Photoshop ® and PS Elements. You don't have to use them as is, you can use them as fill content or as style overlays and then combine those using blending modes or transparency as well as combine those layers with smart flters (as smart objects) to create ever more unique artwork.
You can also use them via the layer style menu. You can use them most obviously with the overlay feature and you can shift and set the scale for the selected layer content. You can also use them with the stroke section in the layer style dialog (instead of a solid color or gradient). You can also use them as a texture via the bevel section. They can also then be saved as permanent styles ASL format for future use
Many of the sets for Adobe ® Photoshop ® include transparency - what use is that you may ask ?? well, you can combine them so much easier when they contain transparency. One can be placed above another and the lower down items can still be seen. If you don't want to use the transparency, you can quickly remove the transparency (it is a lot harder to add in). You can still combine them but you will need to use blending modes such as lighten and darken and exclusion and others You can also combine them more than once with the same tile or with other tiles and again they will all be seamless and literally millions of great artworks can be generated. You can flatten them and then use them as backgrounds, overlays, textures etc as well as the source for new PNG files and tiles.
The sets all include the artworks in PAT but they are also in PNG. The PNG files can be used as a great source for brushes. Easy to use, simply open the PNG file and then go to the edit menu and define command. They will lose any color. You can also, of course, use visual effects to the artwork. Or smudge or blur or apply black and white adjustments to create ever more unique presets / assets which can be used throughout Adobe ® Photoshop ® as well as PSP and other applications
Add to a layer / fill content You can add tiles to tiles and so on by using smart objects [Youtube] Use with gradient maps for great color effects The gradient maps feature of Adobe ® Photoshop ® is a very useful way to introduce a lot of great color art to any item (which are often already super colorful) [Youtube] Video of many of the tiles included in the set Video of some of the artworks in set 114.
