cha cha trusty Posted December 1, 2007 Author Report Share Posted December 1, 2007 It's time to show you how to make your own brushes! You've played with the maple leaf and stars, and when I made this yesterday, I looked for a snowflake brush, but didn't have one in the palette. So here's what I did:I searched on Google for "snowflake" and an image I liked came up right away. I right-clicked and saved it to my hard drive. Then I opened it in Photoshop. I selected the magic wand tool and selected the snowflake outline. (I wouldn't have had to do this if there hadn't been text on the image) with the outline selected, I c/p'd it into a new file (with a transparent background). then....... here's the really easy part.... I clicked the Edit menu and chose "Define Brush". a window pops up and asks you to name the brush, then click OK. Now the brush should appear in your brush palette as the last item. as always, you can resize the brush and play with the settings in the Brush Presets box.Have fun!!
