The rest of the post is a mini tutorial on what "brushes" are on PhotoShop Elements. ( Very BASIC!)
Open an image in your Photoshop Elements program. Add a new layer. ( You'll find "layer" on the tool bar at the top of the page. Click on it and a menu drops down, select NEW.) You don't have to do this, but adding the layer makes it easier to edit.
I took these with my iPhone, just wanted to get some images up so you could see what it's all about.
On the tool bar to your left you will see a picture of a paint brush, click on it.
Select the brush tool on the left
After selection brush tool, select the type of "brushes" you want to use, then select the specific brush. Your program comes with basic brushes, you can find free brushes online and pay a small fee for licensing.
Mark or brush hovering over the image. When you click the mouse it adds the color.
You can see the brush tool over to the right and the colored image it will leave when you click on the mouse.
another tool brush on the top tool bar allows you to change the angle and orientation of the tool brush, you can also change the size and color of your tool brush, as well as opacity.
You can find great "paint brushes" at http://www.obsidiandawn.com/ .
I took a couple of classes here http://www.shabbycottagestudio.com/store/WsDefault.asp?One=1420
Gail's classes are great! This one gives you the bascis of layers and shows you how to use a lot of different tools. It's a great jump start if you are trying to muddle through Photoshop or Photoshop Elements. I took another one of her digital classes as well. Worth the time and money.
Thanks for visiting. See you tomorrow!
