You can use the Photoshop custom shapes in CC versions as well as CS6 CS5 CS4 etc

Yes, they are all for PS and PS Elements and can be used with most versions of the application from the very old 6 (released in 2000 as well as all versions up from that. They are also for all versions of PS Elements from 1 upwards. Unless there is a radical change in CSH, they should work fine with future releases as well (though I have no idea about that). The format has been fairly consistent for many years. They can be used with the creative cloud CC 2014 2015 and I assume they will be fine with CC 2016 and CC 2017 and beyond.

You cannot use them directly in Affinity Photo or Illustrator but you can convert the shapes

Not directly as the CSH is only for PS and PS Elements as well as a few other applications but if you have one or other of the applications then you can create vector artworks and then export them either via the export menu (to save them as vector AI documents) or via the file save command as PDF Vector etc) as well as file save as PNG or TIFF to use the shapes in Painter, PSP and many others. You can also drag the items to the CC library and then use them in applications such as Illustrator. You can also copy them via the pasteboard to tools such as Affinity Photo

The custom shapes were all created by Andrew Buckle

All the presets on this site were created by me (Andrew Buckle) of They were created in a mix of Illustrator and other Vector graphics and then imported into PS and then saved via the right side menu of the presets panel 'save' command. The CSH format being set at 6 for most of the versions (not CS6 but 6.. I know that is a long time ago but it still works fine in Windows 10

How to use them with cookie cutters in PSE

Yes, they can be used as cookie cutters as well as standard vector tools in PS Elements. Sadly there is no equivalent tool in PS

How can I use them as a brush stroke or pattern

Yes, you can use the vector presets as a source for 1000s and 1000s of brushes and patterns. Create the art and then use the edit menu define brush command as well as the edit menu define pattern command. You can also use them as an excellent source for displacement maps, bump maps, 3D effects and more

How do I fill them or add strokes

Depends on the mode. If you use as a layer then you can set the color via the top options bar, set the fill and stroke. The fill and stroke can be set to solid colors as well as gradients and also patterns. If you are using them as paths then there is no fill but you can set a stroke via the path menu. If you add them as a fill pixel then you have to set the color before you add the vector preset. Another option is to then use adjustment layers to recolor the fill pixel.
