    how to download yar plece tyell me fast

    • Stephanie

      Click on “Download the brushes” if you want the brushes, or “Download the images” if you want the JPGs. That’s it. :P

      If you mean how to install, though, there’s a link in my sidebar that explains it, as well as an FAQ that answers that question.

      Good luck!

    How do I change the hair from black & white to color?

    • Stephanie

      Check out my tutorial on multiple colors with brushes, or removing transparency from brushes. Those will both explain the basic premise behind adding color to this hair.

      Basically, though, you’re using the hair on one layer in black and then coloring it on a layer beneath it. You can change the way the black layer blends with the layers beneath, too, if it’s blonde hair that you’re trying to accomplish, for example – that black won’t work very well. It’s a lot of trial and error, but that’s how I did it for the preview images. :)

      Good luck!

  • Isabell

    Thanks alot for these fantastic hair-brushes.
    They are really appreciated.
    But how do I change the colour?

    • Stephanie

      Follow the steps in my “Multiple Colors with Brushes” tutorial (in my tutorials section, you’ll find a link in my sidebar), and that’ll walk you through the basic steps that I used for the preview image here.

  • raju

    awesome brushes man.i luv it.

  • viko

    I have only photoshop 5.5 do you now where can i download photoshop 7 ???plzz tell me ??

    • Stephanie

      It sounds like maybe you have Photoshop ELEMENTS 5.5? I don’t think there was a Photoshop 5.5. So, if it’s Photoshop Elements 5.5, you can use these.

      Otherwise, your best bet is an internet search or contact Adobe to find a newer version.

      • penelope

        Photoshop 5.5 is part of the Adobe CS5.5, which was the most updated, complete and best version of Photoshop before 6 came out just recently. Photoshop Elements 7 is not a complete version of Photoshop and is quite old at this point, so you shouldn’t have any problem using these brushes. You certainly don’t want to replace 5.5 with 7…you would be downgrading and throwing money away. I hope that helps! :)

        • Stephanie

          There actually was a version of Photoshop 5 that is NOT a part of the CS series. It came out in like the 80s or somesuch. Don’t get the two confused! Also, don’t get it confused with Photoshop Elements numbers, which are completely different. As long as you have a version of Photoshop that came out in the 2000s, you’re good to go with these, though. ;)

  • viko

    No i bought the cd end it writes photoshop 5.5 i download all these brushes but it dosen’t work. can you tell me where did you download your photoshop ????

    • Stephanie

      Photoshop is usually about $800 for the full program. I got mine from Adobe, but there’s other places that sell it, as well. Photoshop Elements is much cheaper, but only has some of the features that Photoshop has. Alternately, there’s GIMP, which is free. And these brushes will work for GIMP, as well.

      You can grab GIMP here:

    How much does it cost to have the photoshop 7? or is it downloadable? thanks!

    • Stephanie

      Photoshop is pretty expensive. Not sure what you could grab a copy of 7 for, since it’s so old. I don’t sell Photoshop, nor am I associated with Adobe, so your best bet is an internet search. If you can’t find a cheap Photoshop, you could always try Photoshop Elements, which these will also work with and is very similar (but much cheaper) to Photoshop, minus some of its features.

      Best of luck!

  • norele

    i downloaded them… now what?

    • Stephanie

      Follow the link on the right that explains how to install them. “Installing Brushes” is what you want. :)

  • daly danal

    thanks…. your brushes are of great help.

  • No Ad

    I downloaded the file but the brushes didn’t appear in my photoshop.. :/ what have I to do??

    • Stephanie

      Click on “Installing Brushes” in my sidebar and it’ll walk you through it.

  • phoebe

    love your brushes! thanks soi much for sharing them,i just got a bunch of your patterns too!

    EVERYONE ASKING ABOUT BUYING PHOTOSHOP: you dont have to spend money to use photoshop,just go to adobes official website and you can download a free 30 day trial of photoshop!!…usually one of the newest versions!

  • Bethany

    Hey whenever i try to download these brushes an add comes up saying something bout having to register for “WinZip”? What is it?

    • Stephanie

      Winzip is what you apparently have installed on your computer to extract files. Most things you download from the internet are “zipped” – it makes them smaller. Winzip will “unzip” them – but your computer should have an extraction utility that came with it, as well. You don’t need to use WinZip.

      I can’t provide WinZip support, but I have a tutorial that explains how to unzip using Windows and Mac. There’s a link to it in my Installing Brushes tutorial – click on the button that says “How to Install” on this page, then follow those instructions, including the link to the page where I explain extracting/unzipping.

      Hope this helps!

  • Ashleigh

    I love these brushes I used them on my old computer and now I am trying to put them on my new one. I have tried everything I can think of and still can’t get them to show up in gimp. :(

    • Stephanie

      I’m not really familiar with GIMP, I’m sorry. :( Check out my installation tutorial, and if the instructions don’t help, maybe some of the comments will? There’s been a few things suggested by users that helped them. Otherwise, maybe a “installing photoshop brushes in gimp” google search will help you out. Wish I could help more!

      • Ashleigh

        ok thanks so much! I hope I can get them to work they were so useful when I had my old computer! :)

        • Ashleigh

          got them to work! :D

  • Jasmine

    I’m using gimp and these brushes don’t really have the texture it’s supposed to, I think. It’s just like a normal, mishapen brush D: Am I doing it wrong? Or is that how it’s supposed to be?

    • Stephanie

      If you’re not going to make the hair black, it’s hard to get it to look just right using these brushes. There’s really only so much you can do with brushes, given that they only come out in one color, and hair is so many colors/highlights/shadows.

      If you want to give it a second try, check out my “Multiple Colors with Brushes” tutorial, and that might help.

    its work photoshop7.0?

    • Stephanie

      Yep. Below the preview image, it says that they’re compatible with Photoshop 7+, that includes 7 and all Photoshops that came out since.
