I’m always looking for a quicker, easier way to do things – and here’s a doozy! Know you how load brushes by clicking on the little menu thing in the upper right corner of the brush selection window and choosing Load Brushes? Well, there’s an even easier way! I’ve tried this in PS and PSE, and it’s SOOOO cool! Here’s whatcha do:
1. Navigate to the folder where you keep your brushes (you DO keep them in a folder with your scrap stuff so it’s included with your regular backups, RIGHT?) and find the .abr file you want to load.
2. Click and drag it onto your Photoshop or PS window – right into the gray background area of the work space.
3. Give it a sec, then open your brush selector, and TA-DAAAA! it’s THERE!
If you’re like me and keep Explorer windows open to drag stuff into PS, then this is the super-easy way to load brushes!!
For more neat things you can do with brushes, take our Brush Up! Class – Next session is October 19, 2009 at 10PM Eastern!
