Deb:

This might be a function of which version of Photoshop you're using.

Which version are you using?

I've got PS 7 and the "Charcoal Large Smear" is among the default brush set.

There are different ways to do this. Here's one:
* Choose the Brush tool from the Tools palette
* Right-click to show the Brushes palette
* From the menu choose Reset brushes...
* IMPORTANT: In the dialog box I clicked "Append" because I didn't want to completely replace my current collection of brushes.
* "Charcoal Large Smear" was 13th from the bottom of the appended brushes

Does this help?

~Danny~

What! No pictures?

Here's my first effort at the Chalk technique.
I tried to keep close to the tutorial but I can't wait to invent some new versions for this!

No Luck Yet

I too have PS 7, Danny and I though I knew how to reset brushes, etc. I guess I might have to reinstall from the software? Weird eh? The funny thing is I might still be doing something wrong as I have PS 7 on two machines and can't find the default brushes in either place. Will work on it some more. Anymore suggestions, welcome.

Hey, Ro...

That's a pretty neat effect. I know what you mean about this method having "potential." I look forward to seeing you take this to another level or two.

The good news: There's a good chance you won't have to reinstall PS.

If you were looking in \Brushes for the default set, you won't find them there.

They (along with the other default settings, such as actions) are stashed here:

C:\Program Files\Adobe\Photoshop 7.0\Required\Default Brushes.abr

Try this:
* From the Brushes menu choose Load brushes...
* Navigate to C:\Program Files\Adobe\Photoshop 7.0\Required\Default Brushes.abr
* Choose option "append"
* Scroll to the bottom of the brushes and count 13 up from the last one

Is it there?

Does this get you any farther?

I've been boiled and beat

Just can't find them...you are right, the defaults are in the "required" folder but nothing resets them...what the heck am I doing wrong?

Sorry, getting so frustrated. Also my Painter IX arrives today, hardly want to open that while this frustrated over a simple PS step....dah!

After thought

It seems that I am able to reset brushes, choose defaults from the path you showed me...but when I go to find the brush am I looking for a name or a shape that is 13th down...I thought I'd be looking for names....

Ah... I *NEVER* thought of this as a possible issue. It's definitely difficult to identify a particular brush if you can only see it's shape.

From the Brushes menu, choose among the view options, e.g., Text only, Large List, Small List, etc. I prefer "Large List" myself.

I think we're almost there.

Well,
Hi all, I've been frustrated for days now, watching this thread and not being able to reply due to work stuff, but I am here now! lol The brushes identify themselves if you hover your mouse pointer over them for a minute. I promise to be an active member now!
Kind regards to all,
Tim.
