Opening tribal Photoshop shapes
They are all stored in CSH, this is the native format for the use with Adobe PS as well as PS Elements. Select the CSH tool in the PS toolbox to display the presets / palette dropdown (which displays all the current presets) - go to the right side menu and select the load / replace command to load the CSH presets. If you wish to reset the CSH palette to the original state, you can always select the right side menu reset command.
If you add the CSH presets to the presets folder then the file name will also appear in that dropdown list and you will be able to open the set in a single action.
They can, in some versions, be added to the application via the open command or just by double clicking the CSH set
Photoshop tribal shapes / Cookie cutter and PSE
They can be used as normal items in Elements but they can also be used as cookie cutters as well.
Select the cookie cutter tool in PSE (this is now a little harder to find in the PSE toolbox) and then you will see the various options on the top options bar such as the graphics (which can be any of the vector CSH) as well as feathering and also crop (which will crop the entire document to the size of the vector graphic). If the crop is not set to "on" then the art is just placed in the original location (feathered or not) with the full document and all the image outside of the cookie cutter is destroyed.
While using the cookie cutter tool in PS Elements, you can constrain the proportions as well as rotate & scale & shear.
Once you have the cookie cutter graphic, you can always re-apply another cookie cutter to remove even more away from the result. You can use the end result as a source for strokes as well as patterns. You can also apply visual effects to the cookie cutter. 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 placements if you wish) and you can then also combine those multiple cut layers using blending modes such as difference / darken / lighten / overlay to create some truly stunning work.
There are many videos on my youtube channel giving some uses for the cookie cutter
Tribal Photoshop shapes for ???
CC CS6 CS5 CS4 CS3 CS2 CS1 7 6 and Elements 13, 12, 11, 10 to 1 and Standalone 15 - 6 PC and MAC. Unless there is any major change in format, they should also be fine for CC 2015 as well as CC 2016 etc
Tribal Photoshop shapes and layer comps
If you are not sure of the exact layout of your work as well as perhaps the styles that may be used or the position and visibility of the vector layers used, you can use layer comps. Use with one or more layers. You can store with each layer comp: position and visibility and style. Go to the layer comps panel and then create a new layer comp for any layers currently displayed. You can add a name for the layer comp as well as some additional notes.
You can then move any of the layers, change the visibility (visible or hidden) as well as change any of the attached styles such as shifting a gradient or using a different gradient or different glow or perhaps a different bevel or stroke or pattern used and then create a new layer comp via the right side menu or via the create new layer comp at the bottom of the panel
Sadly it does not store the transformations such as scale as well as effects such as camera raw filter (it would then be more like After Effects)
You can then use the layer comp menu to rapidly display all the layer comps by moving through the previous and next comp. You can also update the comps at any point by just selecting that comp and performing an action such as moving a layer and then using the update option.
There is also an option in the scripts to save the layer comps to files etc
