Photoshop doesn't open zip files. If you downloaded them, you need to unzip them by double-clicking on them in your Explorer/Finder window. Then it depends upon the type of files how you load them into PS. Often you can simply double-click on a file in your Finder/Explorer or Bridge to have them load into Photoshop, but to give better instructions, we need to know what kind of files you want to load.

After the file is unzipped and saved to the computer, you can open Photoshop and select File/Open, then navigate to where the file was saved and click to open the file. If the file is not compatible with Photoshop, you will get a popup message telling you that Photoshop could not open the file.
