Draw with Photoshop Brushes


Recommended Posts

Well you download brushes from somewhere.

They will appear in an ZIP.

Then an program opens.

you should click 'export'

Then you choose the folder of choice.

You open ABRviewer.

You choose: File -> extract Brush set. you choose your folder and double click on the .Abr file :)

Then you set thumbnail size to 500 ISO 80 and you pick : Export -> Thumbnails to the folder. Paint.NET user files.

Lots of work 'hein? :D

i then saved it and tried both open and open folder...niether of them worked,i have no idea what i am doing wrong.

P.S. when i save the plugin, it is in a .dll and will not show up in ABRviewer

EDIT:

Thanx it worked! DeviantArt has some really great brushes but why aren't there many tuts using them? I can only think of the rainbow tut, but that's it.

EDIT: I can't seem to change the color of my brush. Do you have to choose the color before making your brush? Or is there another way to do this?

You can choose a color of the brush, but here is the way I do it.

1. Make the background color black.

2. Draw the brush anywhere you want with default color(black).

3. Invert the colors. Ctrl + Shift + I

4. Use Color Filter and pick the color you want.

There are other ways, but I don't use them. Hope that helped. :wink:

Another and less time-taking way to add the brushes to Custom Brush is to open the Paint.NET User Files and open Custom Brushes from there, then cut/copy & paste into that folder from your brushes folder.

Amazing. That's what the voices said, too.

Wow thank you so much for this tut, i always wondered how to get brushes in to paint.net lol...

one thing though and I will sound n00bish.

I cant seem to get my abrviewer to find the paintbrushes i downloaded.

the export button dosent show anything and when i go to open brush set nothing shows up in the file, im probably doing something wrong.
