Elements for compositing

Is there some colection of all kinds of elements (smoke, fire etc.) for compositing in Photoshop? I know about such colections for video (for example this: http://www.videocopilot.net/products/action2/), but I never heard about such colection for compositing in Photoshop... Do you know about something?

Thanks. There is some good stuff, but many of these things I can cut out by myself. I need something I cant do by myself... elements like smoke, dust... photographed specially for this purpose.

Re: Elements for compositing

In Photoshop I've found smoke is generally best added as a layer (or two or six) over the original image, eg, find a suitable picture of smoke (pref smoke over a black background), paste this as a new layer and change the blend mode to 'screen' or 'overlay', then fade it back - maybe do this several times, and play with blurring and swirling in liquify (so the smoke wraps around right), masking out the middle a bit and so on. Great fun to play with!
