Thank you for this. I am using CS3, but there must be something wrong with my phtoshop. I have made brushes once, but when I select my image the "Define Brush Preset" is greyed out and I can't click it. Why does this happen? I have tried it on a flat pic, in RGB mode and in Greyscale mode. I even closed and reopened photoshop but it won't let me click that option.
oh my gosh thank you, this tutorial is a livesaver! I was about to do a photomanipulation and I wanted to make my own brushes and I couldn't remember how to do it. I ask a really great friend of mine and she gave me the link to your tutorial. Awesome tutorail!!
Thank you so much for this great tutorial. Although I've used Photoshop for years and years, it's only been when I was restoring my old family photographs and documents. Lately, I have been downloading many great brushes from Deviantart, but I've never tried making my own...YET. I have started experimenting with my CS3 (Master Collection), and since my version of Photoshop is the CS3 Extended, I should be able to do lots of great things I never dreamed of. I can't wait to put this tutorial into action and make a few of my own. Thanks again for sharing.
