Vector packs are a set or collection of vector shapes usually with the same theme like floral, wings, skulls, nature or heraldry. They are used by designers to ease the design flow and creativity also increase the speed of creating a design. Vector packs(sets) are used both by beginners and professional designers in their works.

Vector packs are not software or plugins, you don't need to install them, they just need to be open with software like Adobe Illustrator. It's not recommended to open them with Adobe Photoshop because that's a raster program: you will not be able to scale the elements, and it will turn them in bitmap. This is only the case if the format is Illustrator format or Freehand format or EPS. Not all applications support vector packs, and if they do, it is often only with its own format.

Vector packs with CSH files can be used in Adobe Photoshop and they remain in vector format. The CSH format files can also contain a selection of same theme designs such as floral, wings, insects, dinosaurs etc. With CS6, vector pack CSH files can also be loaded as an extension into Photoshop, adding pre-built installation of the vector designs into the application.
