Brushes can be used for tons of different purposes in Photoshop. One great usage for custom brush will be copyright stamp. You can just make your copyright mark and save it as a brush, next time you will open Photoshop it will be easily available in the brushes section. You can also make your custom designed brush and save it as a preset to transfer it to someone else or even you can put it online.
This is a step by step guide on How to make custom brushes in Photoshop :
- Open a new image in Photoshop, it can be of any size just remember your brush size will be the same as the design you use for the brush. So, open a new image with any resolution (in my case it is 1000×1000 pixels) with a transparent background (preferred).
- Make the design or text you want to have in your brush. In my case, I will write my name using text tool and rasterize the layer (by right clicking on the layer in the layers panel and selecting “Rasterize”).
- Now when you have made your final design, it’s time to save it as a brush. Go to the Edit menu at the top and select “Define Brush Preset” option.
- After selecting it, this small confirmation window will open. Rename the brush as you want and look at the actual pixel size of the brush over the left.
- That was it, now use the brush tool. Right click on the image, your new brush will be at the bottom. Select it and click on the image to see the brush.
Shortcut: Use “[” and “]” keys on your keyboard to adjust the size of brush quickly.
