View Full Version : Creating Your Own Brushes.

03-10-2005, 06:22 PM
Hey it's me again, I worked out how to make my own brushes. The kind lad that I am I thought I'd share the knowledge.

Step 1

Create a new document, for the purpose of this tutorial I will be using 100 x 100.


Step 2

Select a brush that you would like to use

Step 3

Create the brush you would like to save. I made mine using the shape and text tools.


Step 4
Press Edit > Define Brush Preset > Enter the name of your new brush.

Thats it, simple eh?

If you need more images, let me know. I'd be happy to add them. I just feel that they aren't really required.

Nice tutorial :)

As a suggestion, you should probably post examples of what you can do with these techniques... I've made brushes before, but for someone who hasn't, they might be wondering what the big dealio is :)

I made this:


from which I cut out the following:


Whee. ^_^

By the by, this is a really quick and easy background to make. If anyone's interested, I can post a tutorial on it when I have some time ^_^

Okies, give me a week or so... I might be able to get one done sooner, it depends on how my week turns out (crazy busy during the week) :(

It's really easy to do, I'm a little worried about trying to explain it, though ^_^

Ooow, just take your time!! :ok: I guess we'll just keep waiting :) And don't worry about how to explain it all, if we don't understand some steps, we can just ask here right? :D

Yeah, it'll take ages in my bottom rate scanner though.

Well I spent about an hour or two on my first tutorial and 20 minutes on the second two.
