Downloading & Installing a Photoshop Brush

Although you can buy all sorts of awesome digital scrapbook kits, there are also many free items available to download for your Photoshop program. All you have to do is:

  1. Use your favorite search engine and type in “free photoshop brus.” One of my favorite site is Miss M’s site.
  2. When you find the brush you want to download, you just click the download link and save the file to your hard drive.
  3. Once downloaded, usually it’s a zip folder, extract the zip folder.
  4. Open the folder and find the item that has a .abr extension.
  5. Copy this item and paste it into your brushes folder. If you are using Photoshop Elements, usually the location is C:\Program Files\Adobe\Photoshop Elements 6\Presets\Brushes or if it’s CS2 or similar it would be C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CS2\Presets\Brushes.
