How to create a star shape in Adobe PS
The easist way has to be via the polygon tool (it is on the same icon as the custom tool). Go to the top options bar and select the star option in the options dropdown. Set the number of sides. Set the type - layer or path or fill pixel via the options. You can also apply them as layer via the option setting along the top of PS. If using the layer option, you can warp and distort them in 1000s of ways to create ever more complex graphics. If you use the layer option, you can also duplicate the layer via the layer menu duplicate command or you can create perhaps another vector with a different number of points or indent setting.
As the shape is a layer, you can also use the pathfinder / combine options to add or subtract from the existing layer and these can then be saved as new CSH

How to load the star shapes CSH in Photoshop and elements
They are loaded in a number of ways, some more effective than other and really dependent on the version of PS. My favourite way of loading them has to be just double clicking the CSH file and that loads all the wonderful artworks into the presets palette. Another way, similar to that, right click the CSH file and then select the CSH set and then use the open command.
You can also add the file set to the presets folder of PS and PSE and then access the set via the presets palette in the app and the right side menu and select by name. You can also use the load / replace commands if you are using PS and that means you can place the file set anywhere in the galaxy.
You can also load them via the presets manager in some versions (found in the edit menu). Another option is to use the open command and this should load the CSH items but not all versions or OS allow for this.
Once loaded, the items can all be selected via the shapes tool or cookie cutter found in the toolbox of PS
Loading the Photoshop star shapes PDF format
The PDF format is not a natural format for PS but the advantage of the PDF format is that it can be opened in 100s of apps and not the limited selection for the CSH format. The PDF files can be loaded in many ways such as via an insert command or via the open command or via a place or import command. This varies from app to app.
When you open the file such as in Photoshop, you will be asked to define the size of the graphic as well as the resolution. You can also load them via the place command (place linked and embedded) and in this, the PDF size is initially defined by the layer but as the item is a vector it can be set to any size well beyond the size of the document so only a part of the item is shown; you can also define them as very small and fill the image with 100s of the same vector artwork.
You can also edit the PDF file in some apps such as Illustrator and then re-color the individual parts of the path as well as removing parts and adding additional paths to the artwork. This can then be saved as a new PDF file but also can be exported as a PNG or TIFF file. You can also edit and modify the PDF in other apps but in most cases this will be just to change the color or add effects or distort the vector though you can still add additional paths as well as use various tools to hide or erase part of the PDF. You can at any time (in many apps) save the PDF vector to a new format such as PNG and TIFF
