Hello viewers! I am Rakib. In the previous lesson, I have discussed about the brush tool and changing it’s different properties and in this lesson, you will see
how we can create our own brushes and how we can load or import different
brushes that are downloaded from online. So let’s create our own brush first. So this is the cup that I want to make a brush using it. So in this case, you have to make a
selection around this object. I have already created clipping path around
this object so I can make a selection. If you don’t know how to create clipping path
then you can watch my Pen tool lesson. When you have completed our clipping path
we can press Ctrl + Enter from our keyboard and we have to Go to: Edit/Define brush preset
and we can enter a name and click OK so we are done. Here is the brush that we have created and we can pick a color and apply it like this and also all the properties of the brush panel;
these are also applicable into this brush. We can select color dynamics and pick 2 different colors and now we can spray and we
will get different colors. So that’s how you can create your
own brush and use it. Now let’s see how we can import or load
different brushes in Photoshop. This is the brush pack that I have
downloaded from online. I will put a link in the description box from where you can download one thousand brushes for free. So to load it into the Photoshop, we will
select the brush tool from here, click here, and click here and we will go to: Load brushes and we will locate the file directory and select the file and click load and the brushes will be loaded. So this is one way and there is
another way to do it. You can copy the file and go to the directory in which you have installed the Photoshop. Probably it’s the C drive and if you are using 64 bit then Program files/Adobe/Adobe Photoshop/ and Presets/brushes. We can paste it here. Continue. If you go to the Photoshop and you will not see it here. You need to restart the Photoshop. Now you can see it here. Let’s reset brushes and select it, OK. So these are the brushes. So in this way, you can import your brushes
into the Photoshop. So thanks for watching and hope to
see you in the next lesson.
