  • Creating brush tip... how?

    I saw in someones palette a brush that was not the typical hard round and soft round that is default to photoshop. It began as quite small, then progressively got wider. How was that brush created, or is it a default brush in photoshop? If so, did they put it in an obscure folder somewhere on the disk or in the software? Please advise.

    Check in your equivalent of:

    C:\Program Files\Adobe\Photoshop 7.0\Presets\Brushes

    There are a number of .abr files there. From the Brush palette, choose "Load Brushes..." to add the brushes from the selected .abr file to the end of the existing selections.

    If you don't find what you're looking for among these .abr files, it's possible the person either downloaded the brushes from the Internet (there are zillions of custom brushes available for download) or created a set of custom brushes himself.

    Search on "custom brushes" in Photoshop's Help topics or use Google to search on photoshop custom brush tutorial for how-to-do-your-own instructions.

    Does any of this help?

      found it!

      Hi Danny,
      I clicked the "fade" option in the size jitter and it gave me what I was looking for. Thanks for your time. I think a little more effort on my part may have been appropriate.

        Oblong Brushes
        by W. Rose
        Hi,
        I'm not sure if this is the place to ask this but it was the closest i could find.
        Anyway, my problem is that my brushes have turned to a oblong shape in photoshop instead of round. Does anyone know where i go to correct this problem.
        Thank you if anyone can help

        Photoshop Spatter Brushes - where to find them?
        by Meaty0
        Hello All,

        Can anyone tell me in which of PS CS2's brush collections I would find the "Spatter Brush". (Note: I said Spatter not Splatter). Mine doesn't seem to have it

        Copy a single brush to another set.

        I ocassionally get a super brush in a set but only want to add that brush to my working se t. I can't find how to do this in CS. I hope it's not something as obvious as cut and paste!

        AHB flat
        by zip022
        After exhausting my search I decided to ask...I bet it's been asked before.
        One of the things I struggle with is many AHB are round our 'dab' or more spiral. Anyone have one that is actually flat and perhaps more square?
        I know I can use any brush, but just wondering if anyone has a...
