define a brush tutorial

What you'll need:
One of the Photoshop programs.

The Steps

1. Open the brush pack that has the brushes you want to define. I'm going to use one of my brush packs.


2. Option 1.
Use the pen tool, or the freeform tool, around the brush. Hopefully you know how to use the pen tool. (If not than outline the brush using the pen/freeform pen tool, connect the last dot to the first dot. Right click >> make selection >> ok. If you don't understand than check out the cutout tutorial or contact me.)

Option 2.
Use the Rectangular marquee tool around the brush.

Either way, you'll have something like this:


3. Click "Edit" >> "Define Brush Preset".

Type in what you want the brush called. Then click ok.
