InstallingandUsingCustomBrushes.jpg

Please scroll to the bottom of this page if you’d rather watch a video that that shows you how to install your brushes. (Note that the video doesn’t have sound. You aren’t missing anything!)

Once you have downloaded your brush from my website, save it in two separate places on your computer:

●      one where your keep any other brushes (create a new folder if this is your first)

●      and another on an external hard drive for safe keeping. (I personally keep a set on my desktop and two versions of the same file on an external hard drive.) 

 

Open PS / PSE and choose your brush tool. Right click your brush tool to get this dialog box:

Click on the gear to the top right. 

Navigate to the folder that you saved your brushes in:

Click on the brush you want to load and it will open in this dialog box.

Click once where you want the brush to appear if you want it to be the foreground color. Or, choose your color picker to select a custom color or to sample a color from your image.  Below, I chose black.  You can use your bracket keys to change the size of your custom brush.

IF you are using the brush on a separate new layer you will also have the ability to move it. Be sure to constrain your proportions otherwise it might look strange.
