Default PHOTOSHOP: Installing New and Accessing Old Brushes

This is a 2-in-1 guide, because for me, when I found out how to install new brushes, I discovered there are a hundred old brushes you can't see unless you click a button.
  1. Open a new web browser and go to http://www.brushesdownload.com/ .



2. Browse around until you find a brush you want. I chose the subcategory smoke, and like this brush pallette:
Click the image to open in full size.





3. Click on it's picture, and it brings you to this screen. (yours will most likely have a different title/auther/picture/etc because it will be a different brush)
Click the image to open in full size.






4. This is the TRICKIEST part. You have to scroll until you get here, and click the download for free option. It's a smaller button, and in an unexpected spot:
Click the image to open in full size.






5. This box will pop up. (again, it looks different for every brush. But it's the same basic stuff.)Click save, and save it to your desktop, or documents. Someplace easy to access.
Click the image to open in full size.

7. Now go to that place. Most brushes when saved first, are .zip or .rar files. All you have to do is right click on them, 'extract HERE'. It's important to do extract HERE, otherwise it will tell you you have to buy winzip. This is the 'cheating' way.


8. Keep that window open, and go to your start menu. Click start>computer>HP:C/(or something similar)>program files>adobe>Photoshop(with your version, I'm using 7 right now because I have enough brushes on CS4, lol.

9. Now open the window where you saved your brush. If you extracted it correctly(or didn't even have to extract it) there should be the brushes name.abr. Click and drag it to the new window you opened. (start>computer>hp>program files>adobe>photoshop)

10. Open Photoshop. (NOW STARTS THE 2-IN-1 SORT OF THING)

11. Open a new document, any size, any color, anything, just a new one.

12. Click the brush tool.

13. Open the drop down brush selector, and click the arrow. (circled in this pic)
Click the image to open in full size.

14. Now select ANY of the brush palettes or the one you just saved!!!
Click the image to open in full size.

15. See? There were loads more default brushes, and now you can get even more for free!

YAY! Lol




Beware, brush downloading gets addicting. xD

Aren't they fun?

NOTE: To people with older versions of photoshop, some brush downloads don't work. I find on the elements versions, many don't work. But on my CS4, all work.
