Types of Photoshop Torus shapes
You can use the shapes in many different ways in Adobe PS - the key options are as a layer, as a path and as a fill. These are set via the top bar of Adobe PS (left side). If you select the fill pixel option then the torus shape decorative graphic is set at the resolution of the current layer. If you select the layer option then you re-size them to any size.
The path option is probably the least used (certainly by me) but it is a useful option as you can modify the path as well as convert them into a selection which can be filled with patterns as well as effects. With the latest creative cloud release, you can now use the paths with the powerful flame render tool (you can also use them with the trees feature)
Cookie cutter and Elements 13 12 11 10 9 8 etc
You don't have to use them as normal vectors, you can use them as super useful cookie cutter tools in PSE. Select the cookie cutter tool and then you will see the various options on the top options bar such as the available paths as well as feathering for that and also crop (which will crop the entire image to the size of the vector graphic). If the crop is not set to "on" then that is just placed in the original location (feathered or not feathered) with the full image and all the image outside of the cookie cutter removed. While using the cookie cutter in PSE, you can constrain the cutter settings / proportions as well as rotate and scale and shear transforms.
Once you have the cookie cutter shape, you can always re-use another cookie cutter to remove even more away from the current path. You can use the end result as a superb source for strokes as well as patterns. You can also apply visual effects to the cookie cutter result.
If you want to have the original image as well as cookie cutter shape then before using the tool, simply duplicate the layer as many times as you wish and use the cookie cutter on those (in different locations if you wish) and you can then also combine those multiple cut layers using blending modes such as difference and darken and overlay and lighten and many others.
There are many videos on my Youtube channel giving some uses for the PSE cookie cutter tool.
