Question Where to put downloaded files

I found this list by Wendy:

Files ending in .abr go in the Brushes folder
.aco in the Colour Swatches folder
.csh in Custom Shapes
.grd in Gradients
.pat in Patterns
.asl in Styles

but where do you put jpg and png? (And I will probably come up with others in the future!)

For example, I would assume the Jeans texture file here: http://www.escrappers.com/freefiles.html would go into C:\Dokuments and Settings\All Users\Application data\Adobe\Photoshop Elements\5.0\Photo Creations\themes\=texture? Or somehwere else?

Where do I put the Filmstrip (.png) from the same page?

Is there a PSE FAQ section on the forum? If so, I haven't been able to find it yet. Maybe this would be a good topic for a Sticky?
(Am I being a PITA, or are other newbies just as curious and persistent?)

Equipment: PSE5 and CS3 on XP MCE and XP, Panasonic Lumix FZ7,
Canon PIXMA iP5200R, and FIREFOX (Whatever the latest version is...)

The jpg and png files are filed and used the same way as your own photos. I have a folders called elements for PSE, Texture files,
backgrounds etc. and keep the relevant jpg and png files in them. When you use a png file, you need to go to Image > Mode > (and make sure RGB is ticked otherwise it is difficult to use png files.

Hope this helps.
