Well hi to all the people who just started photoshop!
Many people who just start looking at siggs and like wow like how do they get those nice grunge contours in there images or abstract styles. It's not hard! it's called brushes. Many people who are very skilled with diffrent programs or with photoshop create brushes for everyone!
Now search for a brush you like here on DeviantART.
Click on a picture and look to the left there is a link download click it. Start the download sometimes these brushes are in .rar if you dont have winrar download it here
. After you have installed read on.
Now you open the file once you have downloaded it (i'll use the standard install folder by psp).
Go to extract file at the top of winrar find the folder: C
rogram FilesAdobePhotoshop CSPresetsBrushes and unrar the .abr file there and your brush is in your folder for use!
If you have a direct file like mybrush.abr just save it at C
rogram FilesAdobePhotoshop CSPresetsBrushes. The main thing is you just place it in that folder. Ofcourse if your path is diffrent like C
hotoshop...... you know just place them in your installation dir.
Now before you can use the brushes you just downloaded, start up photoshop! You have to add it in to your photoshop brushes.
First select your brush from the tool menu as in the image.
Next go to the top and slide out the arrow then click on load brushes.
Then go to the folder where the brushes are so (the basic dir) C
rogram FilesAdobePhotoshop CSPresetsBrushes.
Now your brush is loaded and you can select it from the window where we used to arrow just scroll down and it's there.
