You can use them in many different ways in Adobe ® Photoshop ® - the key options are as a layer, as a path and as a fill. These are set via the top bar of Adobe ® Photoshop ® (left side). If you select the fill pixel option then the artwork is added using the current resolution for the image. 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)
You may find the torus fonts shapes of interest for use with Apple Pages, Adobe Indesign, PSP and many others
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 form, 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 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.
All are stored in CSH format and were created in Adobe ® Photoshop ® 6 format and that means they can be used in all versions up from version 6 (albeit a very old Adobe ® Photoshop ® version) and they can be used in Adobe ® Photoshop ® 2015 2014 CC CS6 CS5 CS4 CS3 CS2 etc as well as the standalone versions of Adobe ® Photoshop ® 16 - 6 and PS Elements all versions
