Brush Tip: To best see what each of these brushes will look like when you use it, you can vary the way that your Photoshop brushes show up for you in your brush preset picker by following these steps:

  • click on your brush tool
  • click on the small arrow next to the brush preview to open the brush preset picker
  • click on the arrow on the upper right side of the small window that opens (where you usually choose which brush you’re using)
  • choose “Stroke Thumbnail”

Those options listed in that section are all the different ways that you can view your Photoshop brushes, so try each just to see what it does! You can use this to switch between all kinds of ways to view your brushes, including large and small thumbnails, stroke thumbnails, an image and the name of the brush, etc.

    thank you very much, this is extreamly helpfull for people like me. people who have photoshop elements 7.0. we cant cant edit and add effects on the brushes such as jitter (which is the key effect ive been trying to get).
    you can add this to brushes (not nearly as in deph as you can on the actual photoshop, ive used the newest photoshop before), but not eraser brushes, smudge brushes, blur brushes and all other brushes…

    so thank you very much, you can trust me when i say that i will be using this alot.

    Thanks for this download. I am a novice in artsy layouts, so hopefully these brushes will assist for various textures within my layout. I use PSE-11. By the way, I just resigned up for your newsletter. Blessings. ;)
