How do you use Brushes
Or have even more fun making your own.
1.Using any selection tool, select the image area you want to use as a custom brush. The brush shape can be up to 2500 pixels by 2500 pixels in size.
When painting, you can’t adjust the hardness of sampled brushes. To create a brush with sharp edges, set Feather to zero pixels. To create a brush with soft edges, increase the Feather setting.
Note: If you select a color image, the brush tip image is converted to grayscale. Any layer mask applied to the image doesn’t affect the definition of the brush tip.
2.Choose Edit > Define Brush Preset.
3.Name the brush, and click OK.
Example: A brush made from an old shoe.
