photpshop: how to install and use brushes. [with video tutorial]

After you download brushes from this blog , a file with .abr extension (if they’re in .zip file you’ll need to uncompress them first) must be placed in the following folder:
Program files > Adobe > Photoshop *** > Presets > Brushes

These brushes are compatible with Photoshop Elements and with Paint Shop Pro. (Here is the tutorial on how to use them in Paint Shop Pro).

Installing new Photoshop brushes is quite simple.

1. 1. Download the zip file to any folder on your local disk
2. 2. Unzip the .abr file and copy it to Program files > Adobe > Photoshop > Presets > Brushes
After they’re downloaded, select brush tool from the main toolbar and open Brushes Window (or just press F5 to get the brushes window)

Click the arrow in the upper right corner to navigate through the Brushes Window (small arrow in the upper right corner)

Now select “Load Brushes …” in order to activate the downloaded ones.

Select the brush and click on “Load”.

New Brushes will show up in „Brushes Window“

Select the Brush colour and play with the parameters. Now it’s all up to you and your imagination.
