Using the brushes even if you don’t have Photoshop

February 15, 2008

There is brilliant free (opensource) program ABRviewer which extracts PNG images from photoshop brush sets. What this means is that you can use it to convert brush sets that were made in CS3 or CS2 to use in older versions.

For instance, I use Photoshop 7, but if I try to download a brush set made in CS3 it won’t work and I get an error message. Very frustrating when you’ve just found an amazing set that you can’t wait to try out.

Extracting the PNG images is also useful for non photoshop users, and for digital scrapbooking etc. It makes the images contained within brush sets available to everyone, in any graphics editing software.

Not just Photoshop

February 8, 2008

Did you know that the latest version of GIMP supports the use of .abr files? (thats the file extension that photoshop brushes use)

GIMP stands for GNU Image Manipulation Program. It is a free program for tasks like photo retouching, image composition and image authoring. Like photoshop, it uses layers, has filters, custom brushes etc. It’s a great alternative to photoshop, and now you don’t have to go through the hassle of converting brush sets.

It does has a steeper learning curve than photoshop but there are plenty of good beginners tutorials out there if you search.

Easter Eggs

Getting in nice and early for Easter. Here are 20 patterned egg brushes.

Eggs

Best used with layer blends to get vivid effects. Here’s how:

– On layer 1, do an egg in black.
– Make a new layer
– On that layer, do another egg in the colour you want.
– Right click on that top layer, and choose Blending Options..
– From the layer style panel that appears, choose a ‘blend mode’ from the drop down box.
– Using multiply, hard light or overlay generally gives a good effect. Make sure you have the preview box checked so you can play around with the effects
– Click ok

Here’s a preview of the brushes in the set.
