Picture of Adobe Photoshop CS3: Brush Creation for Dummies
In this Instructable I'm going to show you how to make your own brush present using Adobe Photoshop CS3. Like many techniques in Adobe products, this can be accompished in near all versions, but the process might differ slightly.

First, we need a picture. I searched google and easily found a cloud picture that will work perfectly for this instructable.

Step 1: Selecting Unwanted Colors

Make a new layer for your cloud picture that you want to create a brush present for. This is crucial because we will be clearing out certain colors and need two layers to do this.

This wasn't helpful at all. You don't say how to save a brush. Wasn't that the whole purpose of writing this?

Step 3, Illustration 3 + 4, I show how to "Define Brush Set" which saves it to your current brush panel.

However big your picture is on the canvas is how big you create the brush when you're done. The largest size you can create a brush is 2500 x 2500 pixels.
