☆Tutorials: How to download brushes


1. How to dowload brushes? ur answer can be found here.


2. Once you have the file(s) unzipped (hopefully somewhere that they are easily found), you should see a file that has an *.abr extention. I am currently running Photoshop CS, and this is what it looks like. (My brushes were made in Photoshop 7.0. They will work in Photoshop 7 and any Photoshop that came out after that (ie: CS, CS2, and CS3). In order for them to work in earlier versions, I have heard that you can rename the file to have a *.jbr extention. I haven't tried this, however, and have no idea if it will work.)



3. Now, you just need to place the *.abr file within the correct directory. You can see the path highlighted in red just below. IF you installed Photoshop with the default path, this will be correct. If, for example, you installed Photoshop 7.0 on your C drive, the path would be: C:\Program Files\Adobe\Photoshop 7.0\Presets\Brushes


If you installed Photoshop differently than what it defaults to, you should still be able to find the Presets\Brushes folder within whatever directory you installed Photoshop.

This is where you need to place the *.abr file (just copy/paste from wherever you unzipped it to).





4. Open up Photoshop. Select the Brush tool (or really any other tool that uses brushes is just fine, this is just an example).


5. Up along the top, just under the top menu, there is a brush selector. It is here that you can change the size of your brush, as well as the brush itself. It is also here that you load up a particular brush set. Click on the small arrow just to the right of the brush itself. Like this:


6. Just to the right of the selection of current brushes, click on the arrow that points out to the side. A menu will come up that should list every set of brushes that you have in your brushes directory. To make my "lips and mouth" brushes active, for example, you would click on "SS-lips". Photoshop will ask you if you would like to replace the current brushes. You have the option to simply click "OK", which will do just that - remove the current active brushes from your brushes "palette" and load up the new ones. (Don't worry, they haven't disappeared! They can be loaded up again in the same manner in which we're loading the lips brushes up now.) Your other option is to "Append", which will append the lips brushes to the end of the list of whatever brushes you currently have active. Either will work, although I like to choose "OK" and have only one set of brushes open at a time.



7. Pick a color, open a new file, and click once somewhere within it. That's it! To switch between brushes, you just use the scrollbar, click on the brush you want, and move the size slidebar to the right or left to make it the size you wish it to be. Just like with any other brush. To load another set of brushes, you would follow the same procedure. Voila!
